Apple Hill Trip 2018
Last October, I finally experienced Apple Hill! My BFF Jennifer had been wanting to take me to Apple Hill for years, but every year that we tried to plan for it, something always came up. However, we made it happen last year! 😃
For those who are not aware, Apple Hill is composed of multiple farms that sell different things like produce, apple pies, home decor, etc. This event draws tons of people every fall! I would compare this event almost to like a fall festival, except there are vendors almost at participating farms, not just in one place. Fall is their busiest time of the year, especially cause it’s apple season, the weather is pleasant, and people want them fresh apples!
We went to a winery, ate a whole bunch of food, and overall had a grand time. People will tell you that different farms are known for different things, so I can’t really tell you which farm has the best caramel apples or best pies because my taste buds are different than your’s!
What I can tell you is that the overall vibe is so warm and fun. It is widely recommended that you visit the popular farms first thing in the morning- otherwise, you will sit in traffic. These farms often have one-lane roads, so plan accordingly. Luckily Jennifer knew which farms to visit, so we didn’t waste too much time figuring out which ones to visit. Some of these farms are very fall-picturesque, with the fall leaves and golden sun rays streaming in between the trees.
These farms are not just opened during apple season, some are opened year-around! A lot of these farms have Christmas trees as well, so if you miss out during apple season, you can come visit after the apple season and get a Christmas street! Less traffic, for sure.
You totally can buy all the apple products and bring them home: apple pies, caramel apples, other types of pie. If you’re okay with taking it slow and exploring what each farm has, I would suggest coming up to Apple Hill! 🍎🍏
