My favorite season is upon us! Sunshine, crisp air, football and fall traditions.
One of the things I love doing with my kids in the fall is to go apple picking, which inevitably also turns into baking. As September marches on, we’re well into apple picking season and I wanted to highlight some local places to go pick your own.
There are also closer in options like DePauls, the Farmer’s Market, or Reston Farm (check out their weekend Fall Fest… more on those options coming soon!) If you are up for a drive, check out one of these options. Make sure you check ahead to see if they require timed appointments.
- Marker-Miller Orchards — 7 different options of apples, also have pumpkins and squash; also has a bakery
- Crooked Run Orchard — Apples, pears, donuts and cider
- Mackintosh Fruit Farm — Apples, pumpkins, corn, dog treats, and a kitchen with food and treats
- Hollin Farms — Apples, pears, greens, pumpkins and squash
- Great Country Farms — Apples (only 3 more weekends as of today), corn maze, farm play area, jumping pillow and more attractions. BONUS: This is across from Dirt Farm Brewery and Bluemont Vineyard — if you’re looking for an adult treat after the kids play, just cross the street!
