As the weather turns colder and we’re nearing the holidays, plan on a trip to Apple Hill for the freshest picked apples, home made apple pies to die for, fresh pressed apple cider and just about any other item you can make with apples!

Many venues have craft fairs and gift shops too and for the kids, some even have farm critters to pet and feed. For the adults, there is plenty of wine tasting along the way. Some Orchards also have extensive open air markets to buy local produce and wares of every sort. And most fun of all, watch apples being pressed into cider…then buy a gallon or two! (Or more!  You can freeze it! I could have kicked myself last year for only buying a half gallon!)

You’ve never tasted cider this good!

As the apple season winds down, the Christmas Tree season winds up. You can visit many Christmas Tree Farms to pick out that perfect holiday tree.

 

Stop for lunch …or maybe a just eat dessert first! Apple pies, apple turnovers, apple fritters, you name it, they’ve got it!

If your sweet tooth desires something other than apples, there are fudge shops and candy stores as well. You’ll not be able to hit every place in one day, so plan your route. Check the links below for maps, which Orchards and shops are still open, and their hours of operation.  The handy grid also tells you what they sell and/or provide.
