Perhaps you should have just studied, but maybe an apple can get you by this time. Why are apples always associated with teachers? Coincidentally, September is not only the time schools begin session, but also a prime time in apple harvesting season. Although there is no solid evidence as to where this tradition came from or why, there have been many educated guesses.
Apples are universally associated with health, hence the saying “an apple a day, keeps the Doctor away”. This could mean it was a gift wishing the teacher good health. Some families could not afford schooling, and apples were used as a method of payment for teachers. Apples were also used to show appreciation, especially when teachers had nearly 50 students in their classroom!
Apples have come a long way, especially here at Daffy Farms. What would look better on your teacher’s desk this year than one of our premium apples?
Best of luck to all students and teachers for the 2016 -2017 school year from Daffy Farms!
Somehow, today is the first day of August and not only does that signify the beginning of the end of summer, but also Back to School!

Daffy Farms ships products all across the country, however shipping costs do make the potential profit earned from our Petite Caramel Apples and Daffy Pop very low. Daffy Apple Caramel Apple Kits are a good option due to their lower shipping costs and often local businesses will donate apples. Please contact us for more information on fundraising options.
