A while back, I had the pleasure of visiting Crandall's Fruit Farm in Orem for a photography project. The Crandalls were kind enough to let me hang around the orchard for an afternoon while they went about their daily routine. I wanted to capture what they do in an editorial photo story, and I'm really happy with the result.
It was so much fun to hang around the family as they all did their work. They sorted apples, carried boxes, all the while laughing and joking together. I could see how much the hard work the did together drew them closer as a family.
Plus, they let me try a red delicious apple.
Truth be told, I had never understood why they were called red "delicious." I'd always hated them. They were always mushy and flavorless. The Crandalls explained to me that most of the red delicious apples sold in the stores isn't grown for quality, just quantity. Now I know where to go if I want a real red delicious apple.
Man. It was real delicious.
Well I'm sorry to get all you guys excited for the Crandall's delicious apples in the Spring... You're going to have to wait until Fall to try them. But trust me, it'll be worth the wait! Prepare to never be satisfied with regular grocery apples again.
