Places to Pick Apples Near Philadelphia

The days of sunshine, camp, and picnics are coming to a close. Although we're all dreading the return to fewer daylight hours and cold weather, there is one thing to look forward to: fall fruit picking!

And remember:

Be prepared to walk! Check to see if there is a wagon service, or plan ahead with comfortable shoes and maybe a stroller or wagon for tired kids.

Check the website of the farm to help your visit run smoothly. Some are cash-only, while others will close unexpectedly for weather or other reasons.

Talk to your kids about what you're doing. Do they know how apple trees grow? What about how apple cider is made? Do they know Johnny Appleseed? Make your outing a fun adventure- and hey, it never hurts to throw in a little history or science!
