Vermont’s pick-your-own orchards are offering a chance to win an iPod during the “Apples to iPods” promotion that kicks off on Sunday.
In this technology-meets-agriculture contest, one specially marked wooden apple is hidden in an apple tree at 16 Vermont pick-your-own apple orchards. The lucky apple picker who finds a wooden apple wins an Apple iPod, iPod Shuffle or iPad.
This good-natured promotion of Vermont’s working landscape is in partnership with Woodchuck(r) Hard Cider, Small Dog Electronics, Vermont Tree Fruit Growers Association and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture.The State of Vermont first launched this promotion in 2007 with hopes of growing participation at Vermont pick-your-own orchards
