Honeycrisp, Our Troops, The Best Gift Ever!!

Today I received one of the nicest gifts I have ever received. This Flag was flown over The Head Quarters of the "Army 34th Red Bull" Basra Iraq on Thanksgiving Day and sent to me to thank us for "Operation Apple" from our Apple Crunchers serving in the command of General Nash. Thank you.. Special thanks to Dan Bari. This is the Best! Please say a Prayer for our Men and Woman serving this New Years Eve all around the World!

It amazes me that our Troops give more to those around them than the World will ever know. You should know you make a difference to all those you touch. Thanks Again for such a wonderful gift on New Years Eve. This is a day that I will never forget!

"Operational Apple" and Christmas

This picture was taken a couple of years ago by our loyal service people in Iraq who love Honeycrisp apples. They were the start of "Operation Apple".

Each year at Christmas it is these faces that I think of. The Brave men and Woman far from Home doing the best to be their best. For what? For our Freedom and for the opportunity for others to be free like us. It is the thought that maybe my Grand Children and theirs may not have to fight wars, because of their service.

So it seems that that getting a taste of home and looking forward to something coming makes them happy. I hope that this group now is safe at home with their families for the Holidays. For those that aren't I hope that many people take advantage of our program called "Operation Apple". Note: If ordering Honeycrisp for someone you know serving order "Fancy" grade. Cheaper and we automatically upgrade to extra fancy.

We don't seek contributions but each time someone contributes enough for a case of apples we seek out the the name and apo/fpo of someone in Theatre and send them a case to share with their buddies. We are honored when people just take advantage of the free shipping. It is our little way to give back to those and their families who give up so much for us each day.

I say Hello out to my old Honeycrisp eating Military friends in this picture. My family sends our thoughts and prayers to all that serve this Holiday Season. May God Bless. May you all come home soon, safe and proud.

Honeycrisp Apples & Christmas

We are getting ready to send out all those gift boxes of apples. We have discounted our expedited shipping 40-50% to help those that have waited. Its going to get cold here in the frozen tundra of Upstate New York.

You still have time to send apples to someone you know serving our Country no matter where they are in the World. Call their parents or someone and get that APO/FPO address and send them some apples. (Check with your Pastor they usually have a list) We pay the shipping through "Operation Apple". Just pick APO shipping at check out when ordering and sending to any, any, Military address. We salute our Troops and say "Thank You for serving your Country for us! Just wish you could all be home for the Holidays.

Well its back to getting those apple gifts ready for the special PA Sleigh we have leaving tomorrow at noon time. Trying to help Santa when we can.

As always I am "Better Than I Deserve" and hope your having a great Holiday Season! Look, Listen and Learn, Family is the most important asset we have.

Honeycrisp Apples for The Holidays

Wow hard to believe only a maximum of 10 shipping days left before Christmas. It has been another great fall and now winter. You still have plenty of time to order that gift box for a neighbor or treat yourself. Many people have taken advantage of our great supply of Northern Spy apples, to have the pie just like Grandma used to make. Honeycrisp still is the leader of the "new" apple generation!

Has been a long day preparing for the week. Tis the season I reflect much on just how lucky we are and how much we appreciate those around us.

"Operation Apple", Let us not forget our Troops serving around the World. Each week we send out free apples to surprise Troops in theatre at no charge. If you have a loved one, friend, serving oversees or even stateside take advantage of sending them apples and selecting free shipping at checkout. It is our and our friends who contribute to "Operation Apple" very small way of saying thank you to those who offer to sacrifice the most.

Ok its off for a little Santa sleep to get ready for a big sleigh day tomorrow.
