The apples growing on the trees
Musselman's is very environmentally friendly which was awesome to hear. They really use all of the apple and try not to let a lot go to waste. More information about this later but the little apples that cannot be peeled due to size are juiced. I loved learning that they do not waste the apples!
We were talked to by the grower of the apples about the growing practices. It was very interesting learning about this. They grow 100s of varieties of different apples. I also learned that they have a Musselman's plant in Paw Paw, MI which is only about 30 minutes from my house!!

Our amazing lunch setup
A mix of various sandwich wraps, salad, and pasta salad.
Cannolis, lemon cheesecake, lemon bars, and cookies
After lunch, we were taken to the factory where the applesauce is made. Pictures were not allowed in the factory but Helene from Musselman's staff took pictures and will send them to us. After the factory, we were taken to a tasting place where we could sample the Musselman's products and the Lucky Leaf pie fillings.
My favorite Musselman's products are the Healthy Picks applesauces seen above.

All of the amazing products
We were each given a cute apple pin and a hand blown glass apple. Honestly, we were all treated like queens on this trip and I cannot thank Musselman's enough. I ordered the vegetable pasta which was excellent. To end the evening, we were served apple pie with Musselman's apples. It was a great day and I learned so much about Musselmans.
