Orchards and U-Picks Along the South Shore

Orchards and U-Picks Along the South Shore



There are some amazing orchards, u-picks and farm parks along the South Shore.  Picking your own apples is a family adventure with benefits that you can bring home and enjoy long after the adventure is over.

Getting to the orchard can be part of the fun!  Some places rent golf carts, or offer wagon rides to the rows of trees.

Indulging in apple cider slushies, selecting the finest pumpkins, or strolling through a corn maze on a crisp autumn day are fall experiences that enhance your day.
