Celebrate Fall with a Family Favorite: Go Apple Picking This Autumn with the Whole Family!

When it comes to traditional fall fun, there's no better way to kick off the season than with apple picking! From Red Delicious to Granny Smith to Honeycrisp, many local orchards are currently offering U-Pick apples with various varieties to pick from giving you the unique opportunity to select the true apple, or apples, of your eye. 

Whether you're planning on taking a bite out of your pickings, baking them into an aromatic pie, or making them into a ready to sip on cider, one of the best things of all about apple picking is it provides enjoyment during and after the beloved fall activity.
