We are blessed to live in the Midwest. We get to enjoy all four seasons. Fall is my favorite. Not only do we get warm days and cool nights or because we get to see the trees changing colors, but because our local Apple Orchard opens up! My husband and I both worked at the orchard during high school, so its close to our heart. Its a local attraction. Super busy on the weekends, so locals know to visit during the week. Our family enjoys visiting the orchard a few times a season. Their donuts are the best (when eaten while still warm of course!) especially with their cider which is pressed right on sight! Its a fun place to go (eat) with the kids. They have a animal barn with turkeys, cow, pigs, and goats. They have a maze and a little playground area for the kids to run around and play in. You can take a horse drawn wagon ride out into the orchard for a tour and usually you can go out and pick your own apples too. (this year the apple crop wasn't at its prime so they didn't open up pick-your-own) In the barn there are plenty of gifts and food items, along with fresh apple cider donuts, fresh apple cider and apples. If you are ever in the area, you must visit Edwards Apple Orchard. They are a sweet family with good ole country values. Here's a snap shot of our recent visit.
