Tuesdays in my Town - Apple Hill
How fun to be back to my regularly scheduled "Tuesdays in my Town!"
This week I'll show you a place that has probably popped up on my blog many times before.
But we'll make it official...I give you...APPLE HILL!
Darin and I went up on Friday. We thought that didn't count as a weekend and wouldn't be too crowded.
We were wrong.
There were schoolbuses, tour buses, crowds galore. We are spoiled since Apple Hill is so nearby, so we avoid the crowds at all costs.
But we won't let that stop us from getting our apples:
and more apples!
This is High Hill Ranch, the most popular and busiest of all of Apple Hill.
I can't resist stopping by because their caramel is buttery and their fritters are just plain delish.
But the truth is, all the ranches in Apple Hill are good and if the only time you can make it up is a weekend, I recommend checking out one of the smaller ones.
see, the neighboring pumpkin patch was even sold out!
Everything was super cute and festive though, and they have lots of homemade goodies for sale.
Just the way fall and harvest time should be!
My infamous fritter.
All kinds of weird, wonky, wonderful appley treats.
There is face painting, tons of craft stands, pie, cider, fudge, pony rides, pumpkin patch, fish pond, picnic tables...all the goods for an old fashioned family fall day.
but what i love best are the orchards.
people come from all over to reap the fruits of these orchards.
i feel lucky to live in a place where good things grow freely and abundantly: grapes (wine), nuts, apples, cherries, berries, tomatoes, figs, melons, christmas trees, and everything in between.
now if we can treat that wonderful bountiful land with utmost respect...then all is well indeed.
now, looks like it's pie baking time!
