Pick-Your-Own Apple Orchards

By in Fall, Featured, Outdoor Fun, Seasonal, Things To Do

Fall is my jam, and nothing beats an annual family trip to the apple orchard. Every year we load up on more-than-mom-can-carry apples, then we cart them home and search for delicious ways to use them all up. As a result, I fancy myself an apple sous chef, roasting, baking, sauteeing, and pureeing my way through fall!

There are lots of pick-your-own apple orchards throughout Halton and into Hamilton. Here’s our PYO apple guide with all the details you need to find an orchard and have some family fun on the farm over the next few weeks.

      Hi Susan, I called Bousfield’s to confirm before posting the list, which is why you’re listed at the bottom, separate from the pick your own orchards. We like to list the local spots where you can buy fresh apples as well (Springridge is the same). Thanks for the added info for our readers! -Amber
