We went with some close friends from Malaysia and Singapore.
You get bags, and just roam around the orchard, picking what you want. You pay $4 for a full bag. Tasting the apples is allowed, even encouraged. Gala apples, chestnut apples, Macintosh, Honey Crisp etc. My head was spinning: I thought apples came only in two choices- red or green. Eitherway, the kids and adults had fun. These orchards usually have activities for kids- we ran around the corn maze, jumped on haystacks, and got to see some farm animals.
We even picked our pumpkins, for the upcoming Halloween gettogether.
