Apples: One man's fruitful journey
When the sun rises on the apple orchard at Carpenter St. Croix Valley Nature Center it glistens on the dew-covered fruit that a young John McPherson literally fell for when he just a boy.
"My mom took me to Aamodt's Apples when I was 12," said McPherson. "It was the first time I tasted something other than a Red Delicious. I took one bite out of a Fireside and I was hooked."
