The Apple Truck is a Michigan-based “rolling” apple truck that delivers fresh, hand-picked Michigan apples to southern states that don’t have access to the delicious fruit. Intending to tour through the American South, The Apple Truck will visit Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida and South Carolina, featuring 90 stops throughout the Fall 2021 Tour. Many people who have moved south will be reminded of home when they bite into fresh McIntosh and Honeycrisp apples.
The Apple Truck will be stopping on Saturday, October 16, at Mansell Crossings shopping center ( 7121 North Point Pkwy, Alpharetta 30022) from 1 – 2:30 p.m. and then will be parked in front of Marshalls at the East Lake Shopping Center (2203 Roswell Road, Marietta/East Cobb 30062) from 4 – 5:30 p.m.
“We understand the joy that comes from biting into a truly fresh apple,” said MariAnn and Dale Apley, founders of The Apple Truck. “With our apples, they are picked and delivered to you within a few days, ready to eat, juicy and delicious.”
Not all states are lucky enough to have fresh, juicy apples available locally. In most of the country, apples are delivered weeks after being picked. The Apple Truck delivers apples within hours of being picked. Their Michigan apples are grown in a perfect environment, with fresh water from the great lakes and cold Michigan winters to ensure sweet and tasty fruit.
The Apple Truck provides southern states fresh, non-GMO apples that are grown on family-owned and operated farms. “Our partners use sustainable farming practices. They’re certified for taking the highest level of care of both the land and the apples grown on it. In our view, there’s no question you can taste the difference between an apple grown with care and one grown without,” said Dale Apley. The Apple Truck’s apples are delivered directly after being picked from Michigan apple trees, providing a crunchy freshness in every bite.
Depending on the crop and timing, each box may include two of the following varieties of apples: Paula Red, McIntosh, Honeycrisp, Jonathan, Jonagold, Rome, Ida Red and Braeburn.
The Apple Truck offers the following items available for preorder:
- 20-pound box of Michigan apples – $45
- ½ gallon of Honeycrisp Apple Cider – $7
- The Special, which is two boxes of apples and two ½ gallons of cider for $100
For The Apple Truck’s convenience, it is encouraged to preorder the apples before your city’s stop through The Apple Truck’s official website. Orders will close once they are sold out.
