Honeycrisp apples a big big drawn for Cranes

This past weekend I had to run an errand on a rather rainy and cold Saturday morning.  Like most Saturdays during the year, the line of cars heading to Cranes apple orchards and pie pantry restaurant was expected.  However, this particular weekend I was reminded of the draw that honeycrisp apples can bring for our local u-pick orchards.  The line of vehicles down the road waiting to get into the gate at the 10 am opening was incredible, even in the downpouring rain and unseasonably cold weather we experienced this past Saturday.  It is truly amazing what our local West Michigan tourist friends will do for apples!
