Small Dog has teamed up with local Apple Orchards to bring you the best of what Vermont has to offer: Apple iPods and delicious Vermont apples! The list of prizes includes iPod nanos, shuffles, Small Dog CAR Tune nanos and Hippod speakers, and even a Grand Prize of an 8GB iPod touch!
Visitors to Vermont’s pick-your-own orchards will have a chance to win iPods and iPod accessories during the “Apples to iPods” promotion from Sept. 17 to Oct. 8. Eleven specially marked wooden apples will be placed in apple trees at select orchards around the state. Customers who find the wooden apple replicas will win an iPod or an accessory pack.
Apple picking is one of the most popular activities for visitors during Vermont’s foliage season. Vermont has almost 4,000 acres of commercial apple production, and the state’s leading apple varieties are McIntosh, Cortland, Red Delicious and Empire. In 1999, the Vermont legislature designated the apple as the state fruit, and the apple pie as the state pie.
“Talk about mixing apples with Apples,” said Small Dog Electronics founder and co-owner Don Mayer. “The combination of Vermont’s tastiest harvest with this popular musical technology is a great way to support our apple growers and Vermont-based businesses.”
