Okay ladies, fall is by far my FAVORITE time of year! All the holidays, trips to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch...I just LOVE it! So my question is this...since moving to Rochester, we haven't done our traditional fall stuff. :( But this year, despite being seven months pregnant, I'm feeling up to it. So I'm looking for an apple orchard close to Rochester to take my kids to so we can pick apples and come home to make apple crisp, apple sauce and apple jelly. I'm just curious if you girls know of any around here. Also, if you have suggestions for pumpkin patches with hay rides and what not I'd be very grateful to hear about those as well. Thanks in advance ladies, I look forward to seeing what you all have to say.

Apple Ridge is good, but a short drive: http://appleridgeorchard.com/

Sekapp is closer, but doesn't have the rides or animals (not even sure if you pick your own apples) http://www.localharvest.org/sekapp-orchard-M6229

There's one we went to last year that is moderately close and also has the hay rides along with pick your own, but I can't remember the name and don't seem to have a bookmark. I just know you drive north an exit and then go west. I'll try to find out and update.

Ok, I found something. I think it's Northwoods orchard near Oronoco.

8018 75th Ave NW
Oronoco, MN 55960-2174
(507) 280-0591

It's listed on this website along with a ton of other SE MN orchards: http://www.allaboutapples.com/orchard/mn04.htm

We will probably be going to Northwoods on Saturday!
