Apple Picking At The Orchard | Mason Apples U-Pick

Picking my own apples at an apple orchard is something that's been on my to-do list for quite some time. There are a few orchards down in the valley and I really have no idea why its taken us this long to finally go to one.

We left bright and early (well, 10:30) and started our journey to the valley. It was a gorgeous fall day that ended up reaching temperatures in the 30s.

The orchard we decided to visit was called Mason Apples. A pretty boomin' place I'd say based on the amount of people that were there when we arrived.

You have to check in at a little booth when you first get there and tell the lady which type of apples you'd like to pick and how many. We opted for a 5lb bag of Honeycrisp apples (the absolute best in my opinion!)

Everyone is used to walking into the grocery store and buying a bag of apples. It's a completely different and exciting experience when you go to the source yourself, see all of these beautiful apple trees lined in a row and pick your own apples straight off the stem. So satisfying!

Lux was so into it! She enjoyed picking the apples off the trees but I think her favourite thing was running under the trees and playing with all of the fallen apples.

If you have an orchard nearby and have never been, I strongly urge you to take advantage of the opportunity! Our first time picking apples and seeing how much fun Lux had will be a memory I'll always cherish. 

ps; the apples tasted AMAZING

  1. This looks like such a lovely day out! I've only ever gone strawberry picking, but they were the most delicious strawberries I've ever had! x
