Are people allowed to pick the apples that have fallen off the trees?

Question: 

Are people allowed to pick the apples that have fallen off the trees?

Answer: 

We only allow farmers to come and collect drops for farm animals. This is only allowed after the harvest crew has gone through that particular block and picked all of the apples off of the tree. Farmers can inquire about apple drop availability and a time will be scheduled for them to collect drops Monday thru Friday 8:30-4 pm, no weekends or holidays. The general public is no longer allowed to collect drops as the risk of becoming sick from eating rotten apples is too high.
