If you drive past a house or property where you can see they have apple trees and there are a lot of apples lying on the ground, ask politely if you may be allowed to collect the fallen apples. They make a good treat for horses and apples can be very expensive to buy. Most people are quite happy to be rid of all the fallen apples.

Pick up all the apples, even the ones you think are too bruised or wormy and discard them later. In getting the apples for free, the least one can do to show appreciation and gratitude, is clean up the giver's lawn properly. Just throw the unusable ones on the compost pile instead. Baking a homemade apple pie to say thanks to the giver, is never a bad idea, either. :)
