Celebrate Ohio grown apples!

Whether it's a Gala or Granny Smith, Jonathan or Fuji, there's an apple for everyone!

Great Lakes Great Apple Crunch

Every October we celebrate the Great Lakes Apple Crunch. Do you think Ohio can have more schools, families and groups registered and crunching compared to other states in our area?

Join us on Social Media to share your Apple Crunch photos and story. Where do you like to find your local apples?  Share your photos and use #OHAppleCrunch. Do you follow Lucas County Extension on Facebook? We'd love to see your apple crunch celebration.
