Pick Your Own Apples?

Does anyone else like doing that? I love fall and stuff like that but its a shame because there aren't that many farms and orchards around where I live now...we have to drive about an hour to get to a decent place.

  • We had to cut down out last Apple tree last year, so no apples this year. But we do have a farm that we could go to locally to do it if we chose to...

  • I've only done the apple picking once, and it was fun, and OH so yummy! Blackberry picking was a big flop... even loaded with sugar in a crumble, they were still too sour to eat.

  • We love it. We have several orchards right down the road from us. The one we go to offers a hay ride into the orchard. You get off & stay & pick apples for as long as you want, then catch a ride back when you're done. You can eat as many apples as you want while picking. They also have a pumpkin patch, hay maze, petting zoo & a big bulk food store. Lots of area schools go there for field trips. They demonstrate apple pressing to make apple cider along with all the other fun things. Every year on the last Saturday in Sept., they have a big family fun day with face painting, food booths and other attractions. Since our 2 LO's b-days are 2 weeks apart in Sept & Oct., we go there every year for their b-days. They really love it. This year, we're having part of their B-day party there.
