In Response to Re: Re: Pick-Your-Own by Amy
I think originally, pick-your-own was a way for growers to cut down on their labor costs, with small discounts to buyers. The place I went, seemed designed for a pick-your-own crowd, because they had one or two trees of each apple variety in the pick-your-own area .. which I don't think is the way a normal orchard would be planted! Each tree had a sign identifying the apple type too .. made it easier for pickers.
That's kind of like the "factory outlet centers" these days, that have regular stores with sales staff & nice try-on rooms, so they're really not the discounted back room of a factory that they used to be!
