Apple Orchard!

I am a total nerd for a good farmer’s market and locally produced items be they food or fun stuff.  Local winery?  Yes please.  Orchard?  Yes please!  Cheese factory?  Don't mind if I do!  At the farmer’s market you will find me trying something new, sipping on some locally roasted coffee, or scarfing down the most delicious apply pie the size of you hand.  I am a foodie so I also like to get ideas for new ways to prepare things.  Who better to ask than the people who grow the food!  Wilson’s Orchard has an awesome selection of apples, pumpkins and the like.  We plan to take the kids along each year to gather apples and try out some of the tasty treats...  this September was no exception.  

This day at the orchard was a busy and windy one but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity for an afternoon of apple sampling.  We started with a picinic which included all things apple like Sutliff Cider and coleslaw with peices of apple... who woulda’ thought that would be so delicious?  The highlight for Sawyer was the quick trip through the creek on the tractor trailer.  Can’t wait for next year!
