A Family Fun Tradition: Apple Picking Season
Just after Labor Day, my family and I start thinking about our favorite fall activity, apple picking! After my kids’ weekend soccer games, we love heading to one of the nearby farms to go apple picking and enjoy the other activities.
Many farms and orchards offer a “u-pick” option, where you can go into the fields and hand select your favorite, shiniest apple and even pumpkins. My kids love picking their own apples almost as much as they love tasting apple cider, navigating through the corn maze, taking a ride on the beloved hayrides, and taking home an apple pie! And then there’s the apple cider donuts that we can’t leave without.
Most states have farms or orchards that offer u-pick apples, so let’s find out where there’s some fall family fun near you!
