VALATIE — Derek Grout, who helps run part of the Golden Harvest Orchards farm in Valatie with his family, received a call a while back from a caterer asking if he could provide apples for an inauguration. He figured it might be a U.S. Senate or Congressional inauguration party. It didn’t occur to Grout that those apples would be used for the inaugural luncheon of President Barack Obama.

The luncheon, which will follow the inauguration of President Obama on Jan. 21, will be attended by Obama and his family, Vice President Joe Biden, Obama’s cabinet members, leaders of Congress, and U.S. Supreme Court justices among others. And if they are apple pie lovers, they will be feasting on apple pies baked with apples grown on the Grout family’s Columbia County farm.
