Apple Picking at A + A Farm Orchard
There are quite a few "you pick" farms in the greater Cincinnati area, and A+M came highly recommended around the homeschooling circles I'm involved in. So to celebrate the first weekend of fall, we headed out there to pick apples to prepare for our fall festivities, especially our apple unit study. The drive took about 40 minutes from our home, traveling through beautiful back country roads and farm land, which reminded me so much of our hometown in California. A+M Farm Orchard is charming, with yummy homemade goods (try their cider!) and a very kind staff. The apple trees are organized and labeled, which made things easy to find apples with all my four kids in tow. I especially appreciate how they allow children to be involved, pulling the wagons and picking their own apples. If you're local and looking to pick apples, A+M Farm Orchard is where it's at!
