Apples to iPods at Vermont Orchards this Fall

Apples to iPods is a fun way to introduce new technology to the Vermont tradition of picking apples with friends or family. In partnership with Small Dog Electronics, Woodchuck Hard Cider and Vermont Tree Fruit Growers, the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing has hidden wooden apples in participating orchards.

Participating pick-your-own orchards have a hidden wooden apple just ripe for the picking! Find one and you'll get an Apple iPod, iPod Shuffle or iPad awarded on a first-come-first-served basis, so start searching early.


There are more than 21 pick-your-own orchards participating in this year's Apples to iPods event. That means 21 chances you can win an iPod!

Official Rules and Regulations:

* Employees of participating apple orchards, the Vermont Department of Tourism & Marketing, the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets, Small Dog Electronics, and Green Mountain Beverage and their affiliated companies and agencies, suppliers, wholesalers and retailers of alcoholic beverages, and members of the immediate families, or households of such employees are not eligible.

* Prizes include the Apple iPod, iPod Shuffle or iPad. Each prize is pre-selected for the corresponding apple.

* Winners must contact the Vermont Department of Tourism at 1-800-VERMONT to claim their prize.
