Start collecting your recipes because apple picking in Connecticut is right around the corner! Orchards will be bursting in color in early September. The cost of an apple-picking excursion—buying a bag for a peck or a bushel—is very affordable. And you're rewarded with a wonderful autumn experience and a bunch of crunchy fruit the kids picked themselves! Starting in late August through October, farms and orchards around Connecticut are ready to welcome families to their apple orchards.
Looking for a good recipe after all that apple picking? Try baking apple pie or apple muffins, or mixing up fresh applesauce with Mommy Poppins' favorite apple recipes. And for more seasonal activities, explore our Connecticut Fall Fun Guide.
