Go Apple-Picking in Vermont, Pick Up a Free Apple iPad
Technically the autumn season doesn’t begin until later this month, but let’s just say the apple orchards are more than ready. Rearrange plans and make your next stop Vermont because up there, it’s not just the fall foliage that’s attracting visitors to the Green Mountain State, but the chance to score some free gadgets while apple-picking.
The state’s pick-your-own orchards are running a promotion throughout the next several weeks where specially marked wooden apples are hidden in and around apple orchards across the state. In total there are 16 different orchards participating, and if you find the alternate apple you win a different kind of Apple—like an iPod or iPad. The state’s tourism department has actually been running something like this for a few years now, and the contest is back for the 2013 season.
If you’re lucky enough to score some free electronics along with your fruit and cider you just need to call 1-800-VERMONT afterwards to claim your prize. We hardly need a reason to celebrate the season, but the chance of getting a little extra when heading to the orchard makes things that much more fun. Check the list of participating spots right here—from Brookfield to Springfield—and enjoy.
