    Apple pickers may

    net iPads, iPods

    It kind of gives a whole new meaning to the phrase Apple picking.

    Sixteen Vermont pick-your-own orchards are participating in this year’s version of a special contest, in which lucky pickers coming across a wooden apple will win an Apple iPod, iPod Shuffle or iPad.

    The promotion is being sponsored by Woodchuck Hard Cider, Small Dog Electronics, Vermont Tree Fruit Growers Association and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture. The state Department of Tourism and Marketing first launched the promotion in 2007 with hopes of growing participation at Vermont pick-your-own orchards.
