Pick Your Own Or Already Picked, It's Apple Time In New Haven County

There's nothing better than locally grown apples (except maybe pies made with locally grown apples) - here's your complete guide to local orchards!

 

Fall = Apples.

But this season, if you're looking to get your hands on the fresh-picked fruit, you should go soon.

"The apples are early this year thanks to a mild winter and spring so if you're planning to go apple picking, it would be smart to go soon," said Abbie Walston, whose family own Rose Orchards in North Branford.

In New Haven County, we are lucky enough to have so many orchards where we can buy locally grown apples. There are a multitude of orchards where you can pick your own – always a fun day out for the family (share your apple-picking photos on our Pics & Clips gallery). 

Tell us in the comments – what’s your favorite orchard? And please – share your favorite apple recipe as well!

If you like your apples already picked, you can stop by Barberry Hill Farm farm stand at 353 Boston Post Road in Madison. While they don't have their own orchard, they do get Connecticut grown apples from Scott's Orchard & Nursery in Glastonbury, CT.
