Authentic Pick-Your-Own Apple Orchards in Halton and Hamilton

Fall is my jam, and nothing beats a family trip to one of the many local pick your own apple orchards. Every year we load up on more-than-we-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 pick your own 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.
