POPLAR GROVE -- The memories are all that's left at Edwards Apple Orchard. The popular tourist attraction started in 1964. It's a family owned and operated business where the owners think of all of us patrons as family. This used to be where you would pick out a bushel of Edwards apples. Now you can barely make out this autumn tradition.

I was saddened to hear our beloved Edward's Apple Orchard was damaged in the tornado. I sure hope this is rebuildable. We have not missed a year in 10 years. In fact, I have pictures of our children in front of the scarecrow (that measures their heighth) every year since they've been babies. If this isn't rebuilt, I may have to ask my husband to make an exact replica of that scarecrow as not to break the tradition.

Thinking of you all in Popular Grove

My sister and I make this an annual trip going on 6 years, getting apples and pumpkins. It was so sad to hear the news of this. I hope the family nothing but the best of luck in getting everything up and running.

No worries, Lou. They're up and running and things are lookin' great! I've been twice this season, and while there's still some construction to finish, it looks like nothing's holding 'em back.
