We’ve been meaning to visit an apple orchard for a few weeks now but between Brandon’s homework and exploring Boston, we haven’t ventured away from the city. On Sunday we went to Apple Acres in Windham, New Hampshire and surprisingly it was only a 30 minute drive from our apartment in Cambridge.
Our timing was perfect because the leaves were beautiful shades of orange and red and we got a great glimpse of a New England Autumn from the apple orchard hills.
Apple Acres offers small or large bags for apple picking. We bought a small bag for $15, which seemed a little steep, and then the woman in charge told us they were out of the orchard maps. This was a downer because we had to wonder around the orchard and guess the apple varieties. Many of the trees were also picked over — I’m glad my husband was tall enough to reach the good ones on the top!
The best part about Apple Acres is definitely the bakery. Not only did we sip on hot apple cider while enjoying the atmosphere, but we bought apple cider donuts and some apple butter. I’ve also heard wonderful things about their pies. I think I’d make a trip back just for the baked goods.
Do you plan on visiting an apple orchard this Fall?
