Not a orchard expert... and I have only been to Ochs last few years so I have no idea how other places are like.
Ochs is large enough that you don't have to rub shoulders with other ppl. Always wondered if I can take my bike there....
@Paul H go to Market Basket. They usually have all types of apples this time of year, right out front. It may make your life easier, then ride HM.
(Yeah, it doesn't work for me either, but it is worth a try)
