We Went Apple Picking

I talked about going to an apple orchard for some fall fun in my last post, but, until yesterday I had yet to go this year. I was craving some fresh apples, cinnamon sugar doughnuts and cider and couldn’t wait any longer.

My boyfriend and I found an orchard about 45 minutes from where we live. It was out in the country and absolutely adorable. It was called Jonamac Orchards. Not only did they have a full orchard.. they had GOATS. They also had a giant corn maze and other silly kid activities.. but the goats were most important.

We did a pick-your-own apple thing where you go into the orchards and pick whatever apples you want. There were tons of rows of trees that went on forever. We got a little adventurous and went over some of the blockades to go WAY in the back. They had told us the Honeycrisp apples were ‘off limits’ which meant we had to sneak over and steal some. We are so rebellious.

Fighting the 85 degree heat (way too hot for late september), we got a good mix of some Fuji, Golden Delicious and so many more. Our tiny little plastic bags were filled to the brim. There is no way we can eat so many apples.. but they’re perfect for making a pie!

After almost dying from the heat, piggy-back riding to reach the top of the trees and talking to fellow apple-pickers, we decided to head back to the barn to get ourselves a nice cool treat: a cider slushie. It is just as good as it sounds, believe me.

We then spent about 20 minutes waiting to find someone willing to take our picture on a giant rocking chair. This was my fault. Tom did not care if we took the picture of not, but I just had to have it. We took some separately:

Eventually, we got a girl to take our pictures.. she was the best.

We are painfully touristy wherever we go.

It was an adorable, fun “fall” day. I would definitely go back, or to another one next year.  Next stop: pumpkin patch
