They're a familiar fall site.
"We've been looking for apples. We usually come over here looking for apples," Howard Lidgett said.
But this year, they're in short supply.
"My trees, all I had was eight or nine, and they all froze," Lidgett said. "There are no apples where I live."
Last winter's warmer weather combined with a late frost is what Lidgett says is to blame for the loss of the apple crop.
"Last year we had so many, we had a lot of deer problems," he said. "But we didn't have anything this year."
Way Fruit Farm in Port Matilda is buzzing with customers hoping to get their hands on some apples.
"Compared to a normal year, we were down about 40 to 50-percent of normal," Jason Coopey said.
But Coopey says so far, this season has been business as usual.
"What the customers have seen has not been much different from a normal year," he said.
At five dollars for half a peck, Coopey says his apples have been selling quickly.
"Grocery stores have increased prices dramatically, so we're hoping folks come to us and find they can still get an affordable apple here," he said.
