Park Slope Parents has an extensive list of apple and fruit picking destinations HERE with tips & suggestions from fellow parents. Make sure to call these places before you trek out (we got to one place and they were out of apples in one field and not opening another one for a few hours!). 


NOTE: As one member pointed out, "In my experience, the actual picking time is an hour or less. So it may be a good idea to schedule another outdoor activity collocated with or nearby to an orchard. The better to enjoy a fall day, and increase the ratio of outdoor family time to drive (& traffic) time."

Columbus Day is a DOE school holday, so if you don't make it out in the next few weekends, perhaps that's a day for an adventure!

Don't have a car?  We've got a list of places you can get to by public transport here.

Now all we need is the perfect Apple Pie recipe...
