Apple Picking

For many families, apple picking has become an annual autumn event.  As the crisp Fall weather arrives, we don our flannel shirts for a visit to one of New Jersey’s farms for a fun filled family day.  In addition to picking our own apples, many orchards draw us in with decadent, homemade baked goods, petting zoos, hayrides and picnic areas.
