Fall is in the air and with it comes the annual Brighton Applefest ! This coming weekend the Brighton Applefest celebrates it's 33rd year.

Many summer days were spent riding bareback through the apple orchards and every harvest season farm workers flew in from the Caribbean to work in the harvesting. My Father was the plant manager of a large manufacturing facility whose specialty was juices and apple juice was their main product. My summer...
