Granny Smith is Applejack, Apple Bloom, and Big McIntosh's grandmother. As a young mare, she and her family were responsible for the founding and growth of Ponyville.  Granny Smith discovered the magical zap apples when she ventured into the Everfree Forest to find food for her family. The jam made from the magical zap apples was so delicious that ponies still gather from all over Equestria to taste it.

 Big Macintosh is Applejack and Apple Bloom's older brother and part of the Apple family. He is an exceptional farm worker due to his strength and physical stamina. He and Applejack perform all the heavy-duty work on the farm because Granny Smith and Apple Bloom are too old and young, respectively. Farm work entails bucking apple trees, moving hay bales, plowing through soil, pulling loaded wagons, and making their famous apple cider.  He is soft-spoken, and often replies with a simple "eeyup" or "nnope". 

Applejack lives and works at Sweet Apple Acres with her grandmother, Granny Smith; her big brother, Big McIntosh; her little sister, Apple Bloom. Applejack is dependable and loyal, always willing to help anybody in need. She works at Sweet Apple Acres mainly as an apple bucker. She is a good sisterly figure to Apple Bloom and supports her friends well.

Apple Bloom is the younger sister of Applejack and Big McIntosh and the granddaughter of Granny Smith. Apple Bloom is one of the founding members of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, a club founded on sole purpose of finding cutie marks for "blank flanks". Apple Bloom aids her family on chores around the farm, such as assisting with catching apples and pressing grapes, and aiding Applejack in herding sheep.
