Presentation Pointers:

1. Call up your nearby orchard and make sure there are plenty of apples ready for picking before you arrive.

2. Plan a menu beforehand and have all your cooking supplies and ingredients ready to go before you leave for the orchard. If any of your dishes don't require apples, make them ahead of time.

3. Make sure to bring home extra apples for an in-between activity. While the food is cooking, you can go bobbing for apples!
