Here Are the Best Places to Go Apple Picking Around NYC

Posted on
When the cool October breeze settles in, it feels like a great time to embrace the fall temperatures with some time outside of the city. If mini pumpkins and Indian corn decorations in your apartment don’t give you a high enough dose of autumn goodness, take a trip outside of the five boroughs with a few pals and get ready to pick some apples.

Not only can you take some cute pictures in the apple orchard in your favorite Social Sunday tee, but you can bring home some apples to make delicious baked goods, spiked apple cider, and more. Here are four places to find the apple of your eye this fall.

Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard

Take the journey up to North Salem, New York for a fun afternoon at the Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard. You can take Metro North to Croton Falls and then take a taxi to the orchard. They have a fall festival every weekend in October so now’s your chance to enjoy hayrides, live music, games and more.

Apple Dave’s Orchards and Applewood Winery

Get the best of both worlds with some apple picking in the early afternoon followed by a pit stop at the orchard’s winery before you head home. They also have rose and herb gardens and a pumpkin patch so all of your fall cravings can be satisfied at Apple Dave’s Orchards and Applewood Winery in Warwick, New York.

Masker Orchards

For those who are very picky (pun very much intended) about their apples, Masker Orchards in Warwick, NY is the place for you. Pick up to 14 different kinds of apples at the sprawling orchards and the best part is that you can eat apples while you pick. On weekends they also have a haunted house and an apple maze. Bring some cash!

Fishkill Farms

If you want to take your apple picking experience to the next level, you have to head to Fishkill Farms in East Fishkill New York. The place has been owned by the same family for almost 100 years and their massive 270-acre orchard is also a great place to view the Catskill mountains.
