New York Getaways – Apple Picking

Apple Picking (2 of 7)_w1000h667

Living in the city doesn’t mean that you cannot pretend to be a country bumpkin, every now and then. The three of us went apple picking with a friend at Barton Orchards the other day and we had so much fun. The farm is roughly 80 minutes away from the city and there are so many fun things to do.

We were a little hesitant at first, because most farms in the upstate area got mixed reviews on yelp. It turns out the only reason is people going on weekends when it’s super crowded. Angry people waiting in line for hours leave 1 star on yelp – that’s the secret of all those mixed reviews. We were lucky enough being able to go on a weekday and the weather was fantastic! The farm offers so many different activities. Playgrounds, artisans, live music, baked goods, a corn maze, a petting zoo, pumpkins, vegetable fields and yes – apple trees. We obviously did end up with too many apples at the end of the day. Fortunately, pinterest is the perfect inspiration to solve that problem.

Our friend Julian is equally enthusiastic about photography so we got some nice family pictures along the way :)
