Take your pick
Where to go for pick-your-own apples and pumpkins

10/13/16
By Angie Sykeny asykeny@hippopress.com



 If you’re looking for a fun way to get outside and make the most of this harvest season, consider taking a trip to one of these local farms where you can pick your own apples and pumpkins. Many farms will have their orchards and patches open until Halloween — or until there’s nothing left to pick, so farmers recommend getting there sooner rather than later if you don’t want to miss out. Always confirm pick-your-own availability by calling the farm or checking the farm’s website for updates. Know of another place to pick your own apples and pumpkins that isn’t listed here? Let us know by sending an email to food@hippopress.com.
