Apple Picking in and around the Twin Cities
Where to pick apples
One great way to get your kids to eat more fruit -- and introduce them to the subtleties of sweet/tangy tastes -- is by taking them apple picking to a local orchard. Below are places to go and things to do for a great day of fall family fun in the orchard.
Types of Apples
Curious about the wide varieties of apples and what they're used for and taste like? Check out this neat page from New York Apple Country that provides photos and information. And, just to make you feel even better about taking your family out for a day picking apples, here is an article on the health benefits of a trip to the apple orchard.
One last thing: If a grower does not have a web site listing hours, PLEASE call first to make sure they are open! (This is experience talking!)
