Last week while the munchkins were on fall break from school I took them to Evans Orchard to go apple picking. We met up with some dear friends and had a marvelous day. This orchard is fabulous because it has a playground, a petting zoo, orchards, pumpkin patches, hayrides and more. My favorite part though is meandering through the orchards looking for the most perfect apples to bring home. We ended up with two baskets full. One basket full of apples for pies, and one basket with Fuji apples for eating. I think that we’ve had apples with every single meal since we brought them home. They are so delicious!
Evans Orchard is located in Georgetown, Kentucky about an hour away from Covington & Cincinnati. Visit the Evans Orchard website for more information about this farm. They are open from May through the fall.
