It was a beautiful late summer morning, so we decided to take a trip to an apple farm to get some pie-making apples. I don't bake too many pies from scratch, but September/October always finds me filling a homemade pie crust with some sort of apple concoction.
This country road seems so fitting for an apple orchard and farm stand. It's about a 45-minute drive from where I live. It is gorgeous when the maple trees are dressed in their autumn finery. We plan to go again next month to get more apples and take in the spectacular colors.
Cute welcome sign by the main entrance to the store.
We arrived 15 minutes before the store opened, so we walked around the orchard and explored a bit.
They have a few farm animals for children, making it the perfect autumn day trip for families (what a great marketing idea that was!)
This sign was above the outside sink for the porta-a-potty.
They have a covered outdoor seating area for their lunches. They were cooking brats and grilled apples today.
As soon as the doors opened, we headed to the apples. I asked for a tart apple for pies and they suggested Gala Reds.
While DH paid for our peck of apples, I snapped a few pictures around the store.
I have not tried one yet, but DH did and said they are good.
I had planned to take a glass-bottom boat tour of local shipwrecks this weekend, but that never happened. The tour is over two hours long and I just did not have the time to spare on Saturday. Maybe next weekend. If I do, I will certainly share it with all of you.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
