Orchard owner says the apples were stolen to make apple sauce or apple cider. btw go to Aldis if you like apple cider. $3.49/gallon. They are giving this stuff away.

Whoever stole the apples is probably making apple cider for Aldi!

Yeps! Indeed! Now I see why apple cider is at bargain prices at Aldis. They also have anvil loppers there at $9.99 this week but I will admit I don't like the design. Having bought previously. The handles have to spread out too far to cut off the branch. But razor sharp!

Aldi also has electric chainsaw at $35 and battery ops pole saw at $69 this week. At least at the Aldi at McNab and University in Tamarac 33321 that I saw yesterday. I bought their electric chainsaw a few years ago and have no complaints.

that is just so wrong.  They should install hidden bear trap. How long does it take to harvest 50K apples? Took me an hour just to harvest about 100.  Must have some kind of machine?

How do you get away with 50k of apple?  You would need at least a crew of 30 people and heavy machines to move 50k of apple in 2 days if you are fast.
