Call ahead to find out the schedule – depending on Mother Nature, this year’s harvest can be running early or late, affecting hours.
Dress appropriately – wear comfortable clothes and footwear that can get dirty. Don’t forget the bug spray and sun screen!
Most of all, have fun! Take it slow, and enjoy the peace and quiet. Let the littlest ones set the pace.
Try varieties of apples that are new to you
Mind your manners. Be nice to the trees, and carry your trash out with you. Take all the fruit that you pick.
For the best apple eating experience, pick fruit that is firm to the touch and free of bruises. Once you get them home, store apples in your refrigerator, in a ventilated bag, away from other strong-odored foods.
Continue the fun at home! Involve the whole family in preparing apple dishes. They’ll all be more inclined to eat food they helped prepare!
