Today I wrote a post over at Parent Talk, our local mom’s organization, talking about apple picking. It is by far one of my most favorite activities during the fall season. It’s peaceful, beautiful, and there is usually an apple pie coming out of the oven at the end of the day. Later this week I’ll share my Nana’s No-Crust Apple Pie recipe that I made on Friday. It was pretty amazing if I do say so myself.
Goodbye summer, hello fall. Fall to me means apple picking, warm cider doughnuts and then an afternoon making pie. We often make a visit to the local u-pick farms to get our apples. They are so good straight off the vine. This year, due to the crazy warm weather in the winter, apples arrived early. Now is the time to get picking before they are gone. Here’s my recap of local apple picking farms closest to Needham.
Belkin Lookout Farm
-Located in South Natick, this is the shortest drive to an apple picking farm. We get the season pass which covers the entrance fee for a family of four. If you go on weekends, the pass pays for itself quickly.
