One of our favourite times of the year, as the smell of fresh baked apple pie, apple cider and apple fritters fills the air!  

Picking Your Own Apples is a great way to spend a day out in the fresh air with the family with the added benefit of having a tasty treat at the end of it.  Many of these farms have other activities for kids, so  don't forget to hop on their website by clicking on the farm name below, or call before heading out for the day to find out what is available and what restrictions are in place for each farm.
