My Favorite Orchards in New York & New Jersey


Fresh apple cider donuts, pumpkin patches, and apple picking are some of favorite things about fall. I grew up in California, which meant not really experiencing a proper fall. When I moved to New York, I was overjoyed by everything there is to do here in the fall. The East Coast does apple orchards right. Apple picking (and the whole orchard experience) has been my favorite autumnal activity since I've lived here. 

As this is my fourth fall in the New York area, I decided it was time I share the orchards I've been to and what I liked about them. Hopefully this will inspire you to to have your own apple picking afternoon!
