The write up read: Our families are planning to go apple picking and would like to invite otherhomeschooling families to join us. The only cost involved is for the applesyou pick ($0.45 a pound).When I called A&M the woman who answered the phone said by September 30thwe should be able to pick:red and yellow delicious, empire, johnathan, grimes golden and one other variety (I can't remember what she said) She said the winesap may or may not be ready, we are welcome to "bite" one and see if we like them that day.This is one of the few UPICK farms for apples in our region of the state.The staff has always been wonderful and friendly and the kids really enjoy themselves.
A&M is open 9 AM to 6 PM. They have a couple of picnic tables out front, you are welcome to arrive early and eat a packed lunch or if your family eats lunch later, feel free to eat lunch following apple picking!
Things really weren' t the same without Grant with us, but I knew he would enjoy a quiet house so we headed out! We kept missing the roads we were supposed to turn on, it got to be quite comical after the second missed turned! 2 other homeschool families showed up and joined it, the weather was absolutely gorgeous! The bees were out and about but not at all aggressive! We ended up with 20 lbs of apples, 2 gallons of cider, some candy and some homemade jam. Click on the collage to make it bigger!
