Your Guide to Apple-Picking Season

With the smell of autumn filling the air, its time to head to the orchards and pick your own apples for cider, pies and eating off the tree.

There's nothing quite like taking the family and retreating to a local farm on a fall afternoon. Freshly-pressed cider, a warm cider donut, the carving of a jack-o-lantern all contribute to each year's autumn memories, but there's also plenty of fun to be had out doors.

It's apple-picking season, and Connecticut is flush with orchards and farms with trees begging to be picked so they can contribute to your pies, homemade ciders and daily efforts to keep the doctor away.
