Fall Harvest: Visit an Apple Orchard this Season
Last Updated: 8/20/2013
How do 'ya like them apples? Sauced, candied or pie-d? We’ll take them any way we can!
There are few things sweeter than a ripe, juicy apple plucked straight from the tree. All over Wisconsin you’ll find apple harvest celebrations that the whole family can enjoy, complete with hayrides, fresh pies, music, and of course, apple picking.
Take the apples of your eye to one of these fall harvest festivals:
- September 1-30: Apple Holler’s Apple Pickin’ & Family Festival – Sturtevant The kids will love pony rides, a corn maze, wagon rides and more.
- September 21: Apple Harvest Festival – Waukesha Take in live music and local crafts, and taste fresh pies and cider.
- September 28 & 29: Baker Orchard Art Festival – Centuria In addition to hayrides and cider, take a look at art works in the gallery.
- October 4-6: Bayfield Apple Festival – Bayfield This three-day fest features boat rides, an apple pie & peeling contest and live music.
To find an apple farm near you, visit the Wisconsin Apple Growers Association Orchard Locator. While apple picking is typically at its peak from the end of September, be sure to check with the orchard before heading out – due to unseasonable weather this year, ripeness may change.
