Country Apple Orchard was established in 1984 and opens its arboreal doors to eager pomme pickers every year in the middle of August, staying open through late October. Thirteen varieties of crisp, juicy apples sweetly seduce orchard visitors, and today's Groupon lets you hand-select the contents of your own 10-pound satchel. Connel Red, Fireside, Sweet Sixteen, Regent, and Cortland apples are vibrant and crisp, just right for snack seekers, pie makers, and children who need extra incentive to get good at playing catch. Haralson and Haralred apples tout tongue-tickling tartness, making them marvelous in cold-weather desserts and when paired with feather earrings. If you're seeking an apple that's as sweet as an apple pie all on its own, track down a tree of Jonathons. An afternoon at the orchard makes a wholesome autumn excursion ideal for families, outdoorsy friends, and curious proto-humans. Approximately 6,000 fruit-bearing trees make up the orchard, flaunting a diverse body of flavors.
