Fall has officially arrived and apple picking season is in full swing! From Gala to Stayman, or Honey Crisp, your favorite apple is out there waiting to be picked.
If you live in the Virginia area, apple picking opportunities are abundant! From Central Virginia to the Shenandoah Valley to the Blue Ridge Highlands, you will find hundreds of acres filled with over 15 varieties of apples! Take a drive and enjoy a visit at a local farm. De-stress as you enjoy fresh picked, crispy apples along with some warm apple cider and plenty of fresh air.
Not interested in apples? Enjoy a fall festival with mazes, hayrides, jams, apple butter, pumpkins, cow trains, music and more! This weekend (Oct. 11-13), enjoy the Hands and Harvest Festival located in the Shenandoah Valley. The festival will offer many fall traditions along with a BBQ Chicken Dinner to benefit those in need. Or, enjoy the end of the harvest at an annual BBQ and Bluegrass Festival, next weekend, October 19.
As the warm summer days fade away, there is a harvest of fall fun just waiting!
