With the fall harvest upon us a wonderful idea for a day trip is a visit to your nearest you-pick-em orchard. Where I'm from this time of year everyone heads to nearby Huber's Farm to pick apples, taste wine and cider, have a farm fresh lunch, and maybe even head out on a hayride. Pick up a cheap car hire and take your family out for a trip to the farm and pick some fresh veggies.
Picking your own fresh basket of apples is so enjoyable. It's an activity people of all ages can enjoy. In fact, our local orchard has often been the site of our family reunions. Picking fruit isn't the only fun to be had. In the fall many farms and orchards offer haunted barns to scare the kiddies on an autumn night before Halloween, hayrides, mazes, pumpkin carving or painting activities, and much more.
Farms that welcome guests on to pick their own produce aren't just located around my hometown in Kentucky and Indiana, you can find them all across the United States, from Rhode Island to New Mexico. Around the world there are you-pick-em farms in Australia, the United Kingdom, and even in Japan. To find a place to pick some fall veggies during your next day trip by car rental visit PickYourOwn.org. They also have great info on how to can, freeze, and make preserves with your fresh picked goodies.
Not sure when the farms near you will have some fruit? Check out the harvest calendar in your local area to plan your trip. The season could vary by up to a couple of weeks, so you will need to phone ahead to your intended farm to make sure.
