The first day of Fall has arrived which means one thing, Apple and Pumpkin picking time! We could not think of a better place to go and do one of our favorite activities but Outhouse Orchards in North Salem, NY. This family run farm has been a favorite of ours, and the entire family looks forward to going every year!
Whats apple and pumpkin picking without donuts and cider! Outhouse Orchards has some of the best donuts around (so good we buy a dozen of each) both the pumpkin and apple cider donuts are out of this world. They also offer hot or cold apple cider which is the perfect pairing to these delicious treats. Every time we come I can’t help go get my donuts so I can eat one to start off my day at the orchard. Near the donuts there is also a great sunflower patch which is the perfect area for a family photo op!
With so many fun activities to do its always hard to decide which to start with, the fun hayride, exciting corn maze, or classic apple and pumpkin picking?? Outhouse also offers a jumping castle, face painting and a super fun band. I love to bake, so apple picking was top priority for me! $25 for a small bag and $40 for a large bag, you get hours of fun in the orchard with your family. The trees were low enough, so even our smaller (2 years old) family member was able to pick her own apples and join in on the experience. And if you also are a peach lover, they have some of the juiciest peaches to pick and eat!
Sometimes picking the perfect pumpkin can be a hard task, with so many different colors, shapes and sizes to choose from the options are endless! We let our little family members take on the picking task, and each chose a completely different one. Our son went for the large orange classic pumpkin, and our daughter went for the smaller white pumpkin- each unique to their personalities.
Make sure to check out Outhouse Orchards and make them apart of your fall family tradition just as they are apart of ours!
