One of the best parts of living in New England is the plethora of apple orchards. I can’t imagine not including apple picking as one of the main fall activities. It’s such a fun, relaxing time, and is perfect for all ages. We usually go to Carver Hill Orchards in Stow to pick apples and have cider donuts. It’s small and quiet, and far superior to it’s larger kid-focused neighbors.
I generally only make it to an orchard once a season, which is a real shame. It always seems that fall will last way longer than it does, but the days just go by so fast lately. So, this is me saying to get out there now and go apple picking. Or romp through the fallen leaves. Or take a short hike to see the foliage. It’s the best time of the year, and deserves to be enjoyed in all its splendor.
