The Apples are Ripe and Picking Season is Here


Why not spend an afternoon picking apples at a nearby orchard? It’s a fun family activity that the kids will treasure. Be sure to go hungry in order to taste all the varieties of apples. And while you are there, why not pick up some pumpkins as well? Kids love to pick pumpkins by size, shape, and handle.


Don’t forget to stroll around the orchard to take in the stunning fall foliage of Hudson Valley’s scenic rolling hills.
