Each fall, I like to take my children apple picking. They learn about nature and where food comes from. They are outside and it is fun! We usually go to a Brown's Orchard in Loganville, Pennsylvania but there are a few pick your own apple orchards in our area. There is Shaw Orchards in White Hall, Weber's Cider Mill Farm in Parkville and Baugher's Orchard in Westminster.
Don't they look good? If you are interested in going to one of the orchards listed, I encourage you to visit their websites so you know what the picking hours are and what type of apples are available. September is the peak of apple season so don't wait too long to go or all the good ones will be gone.
