When Fall rolls around I always look forward to picking fresh apples and then turning them into tasty, sweet desserts. Since I was a little girl my family and I always had a tradition of going to the local mountain town to pick apples and enjoy the cool, crisp fall air. As I grew up there were less u-pick apple orchards in this mountain town but we still went and bought bags of fresh, in season apples. Now that we have moved I knew we would be able to find a u-pick apple orchard. We invited my Aunt and Uncle to come along with us for the adventure.
We had a nice day attending a street fair in this local town nearby us and before we left we sought out the best apple orchard. We found this mom and pop orchard. They literally run it out of their house. Their RV garage is the store where they have wonderful apple products and to-die-for homemade caramels! They were the sweetest little couple. This couple will even do educational days where you can take your homeschool group there and they will teach the kids how to make apple cider. It is really neat.
I wanted to share with you some of our pictures from apple picking at this orchard. This was Cody’s first time apple picking and it had been a really long time since I had done it too. We had such a nice time.
They had these cool apple picking tools. It would grab the apple and then fall into this soft foam pad. They worked like a charm. You can see Corbin is taking this very seriously.
