60 Pounds of Apples!

Yep, we picked apples this weekend...a whopping 60 pounds of them! The super fabulous weather and desire for more fruit put-away for winter inspired us to head out to Windy Hill Apple Farm. We chose this apple farm because they use no chemicals and grow the apples organically, though they are not certified.

We so enjoyed ourselves :) ....

The orchard is laid out neatly and allows for easy access...

Yay for apples you can touch and eat straight from the tree!

Is this place called "You-Pick" or "Eat-While-You-Pick"?

Gotta reach high for the good ones!

The area is very picturesque with rolling country and apple trees...

Cobbler, crisp, pie, sauce - if it's got apples in it, we're about to make some!
