Tuesday at 2:56 pm
September is when many apple orchards are ready to be harvested, so it’s time to pack a bushel and pull out your favorite pie recipes. The Daily Meal rounded up some of the best apple orchards across the country that offer a variety of apple flavors and activities to do when you’re done in the orchard. To choose the top orchard in every state, The Daily Meal scoured online ratings. This year, with the coronavirus pandemic still affecting the country, The Daily Meal also made sure it was a facility where you could still get the full fall experience as of this writing. Note that not all apple varieties are available at the same time. Some might be ready in late August, while others won’t be ready until early October. Most orchards recommend calling ahead to check availability before visiting. Otherwise, some post updates on their websites and social media for you to check as well.
