Apple & Pumpkin Picking in Connecticut Guide

Pick Your Own Apples and Pumpkins in CT

The only consolation for summer ending (in my book) is that we are about to enter glorious Autumn here in Connecticut. Taking the kids to one of CT's beautiful orchards to pick their own apples right off the tree is a right of passage in this part of New England. Many orchards also host cool kids' attractions, like hay rides, corn mazes, petting zoos, bouncy houses, and home-baked treats such as cider-doughnuts, homemade pies and fresh-pressed cider. You'll find orchards in each region of the state here in our apple picking guide. And let's not forget how fun it is to find the best pumpkin in a local pumpkin patch. Here you can find a fun patch to find the perfect pumpkin for your Halloween carving project.
