Harvest Season at NEPA’s Apple Orchards

Fall in NEPA: It’s All About the Apples

Few things in NEPA scream autumn more than a bushel of orchard-fresh apples. Sure, we’re all about hoppin’ on that pumpkin spice train, but once those first few chilly evenings roll around, it’s apple time. Overnight, our minds turn from summer fun to sweet Macintosh, crunchy Honeycrisp and tart Granny Smith to name a few. Soon, we’re pulling out pie pans and dusting off our favorite cider mugs.

Apple season in NEPA is a serious business. And our small, family-run orchards, farm stores and produce stands are standing by just about every variety you can imagine. Whether you’re grabbing a bushel on the run or making a day of it at a pick-your-own orchard, we’ve got you covered with this list of places to find fresh, local apples all season long.
