Well, sort of. The “Apples to iPods” event is back again throughout Vermont apple orchards this fall.
How it Works
We will hide specially-marked wooden apples in 19 of Vermont’s pick-your-own apple orchards all over the state. If you find one of these unique “iPod apples,” while out picking apples, you win an Apple iPod or maybe an iPad! Simple as that.

The Perfect Autumn Activity
As generations of visitors and Vermonters well-know, apple picking is one of the most popular activities in the state during Vermont’s stunning foliage season. There is something truly special about spending an amazing fall day in the hills of Vermont surrounded by the sweet smell of fresh apples and picking them with your own hands. Adding a free iPod to your bounty only makes it that much more special.
The State Fruit, The State Pie
Only in Vermont – where our legislature named the apple as our state fruit and the apple pie as our state pie – will you find such a unique harvest as “Apples to iPods.” Vermont has almost 4,000 acres of commercial apple production, and the state’s leading apple varieties are McIntosh, Cortland, Red Delicious and Empire.
“Apples to iPods” is sponsored in partnership by the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing, Woodchuck Draft Cider, the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Small Dog Electronics.
