Apple of Your Eye
Apple picking season is here – and that’s a time for celebration if you love apple pie, apple cider or just watching the apple of your eye frolicking in the crisp fall air.
Bring the kids, or just your apple-picking basket, and enjoy plucking these juicy delights fresh from the trees at one of Bucks County’s farms and orchards. At Tabora Farm and Orchard in Chalfont, the kids can also enjoy farm animals a huge sandbox and fresh apple goodies made fresh daily. Yardley’s Shady Brook Farm offers hayrides to the apple orchard, inflatable attractions and family fun. Solebury Orchards in New Hope is known for their beautiful country setting and high-quality fruit. Want to know before you go? Here’s a hint: the best apples for simply eating are Gala, Honey Crisp, Golden Delicious, Cortland, Jonagold, Cameo and Fuji. For apple pies or apple sauce, Golden Delicious are best due to their higher sugar content. You can also combine golden delicious with Cortland, Honey Crisp, Cameo or Jonagold. Yum!
