Apples at Indian Ladder Farms

Continuing with some of the photos from my trip to upstate New York a year ago. This is part of the store at Indian Ladder Farms. ILF is essentially an apple orchard where you can pick your own apples or buy them by the bushel. They grow and sell all manner of fall crops in addition to apples: squash, corn, pumpkins. And they have a cider press and a bakery.

Apples for sale at Indian Ladder Farms, Altamont, New York.

Everything is good there and I like to visit whenever I'm back home in autumn. The McIntosh apples are my favorite. And I love fresh apple cider. They make great donuts, plain and cinnamon-sugar. And pies. Oh, the pies! It's just one of those local places that celebrates local produce. And I love that.


  1. Oh, how I ADORE McIntosh apples! They are the only kind I like. I had one apple in France that tasted similar, but I have no idea what kind it was. Any idea?

    I love places like this. There is one in Stowe, Vermont, too... with the apple cider press, and the bakery, to sell you maple donuts and apple-y things.



  2. Mmmm, I love apple cider. I need to go buy some this week.

  3. I'm not so fond of McIntoshs for eating. Courtland apples are similar but the taste+texture makes for much better eating. They tend to be on the large side, bigger even than Honeycrisps. Gala apples are my favorite for eating these days.

  4. judy, there are so many varieties of apples in France as in the US. I couldn't begin to guess!

    cubby, good!

    peakvt, thanks for stopping by. I like Courtlands and Galas, too.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
