Before trees began dropping apples on scientists' heads during the seventeenth century, the only evidence for gravity existed in fumbled ice-cream cones and stair-descending slinkys. Pick a piece of scientific proof with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fruit picking and fresh produce at Meleg's Lakeview Orchard & Cider Mill in Kingsville.
Meleg's produce professionals grow a seasonal selection of fresh fruit and vegetables on a 65-acre farm and transform pickings into jams and ciders. Visitors venture into the orchard where they pull peaches straight from the tree during the summer ($0.70/lb.) and arm-wrestle branches for apples ($0.70/lb.) and the locations of secret exits to the corn maze in the fall. Patrons take a break from traversing the trees to browse the orchard's store, where arms overflow with twelve ears of sweet corn ($5) and 250 millilitre jars of strawberry jam ($3). Starting September 15, the cider mill wakes, lets out an ear-splitting yawn, and begins producing sweet apple cider ($3–$5) and vinegar ($10–$15).
Prices are subject to change from week to week based on produce availability.
