Apple Festival guide covers 2014 season


This week's Hendersonville Lightning salutes Henderson County's apple farming tradition with an in-depth look at the 2014 apple season. We cover what goes into apple farming from early season pruning to picking and the market.


Make sure you pick up a copy of the new Lightning, a record-tying 72 pages. Find out about all the crafts, music lineup and food vendors at the North Carolina Apple Festival.

You've got to get a hard copy — because it's only in print and it's only in the national award-winning Lightning.
