It’s inevitable that this time of the year calls for colder weather and colorful leaves. For the fall fanatics out there, the best preparation for the changing of the seasons is to build up a fall bucket list, and what better way to embrace September than by planning out an apple picking adventure? Here are Rochester’s best fall farms that you need to visit in order to win at fall!
Wickham Farms: Perhaps one of the more well-known farms in the area, Wickham Farms is your one-stop shop for all things Fall. Aside from the apple orchard that’s open every weekend, Wickham keeps the whole family entertained with a giant corn maze, apple cannons, kiddie train rides and more. Do you have a Fall birthday or important event coming up? Show your guests a great time and host your private celebration with Wickham!
Schutt’s Apple Mill: Although Schutt’s is open year-round, their vast selection makes them an ideal location when getting the best apples for your favorite pie recipe. Like Wickham, Schutt’s has more than just apples; they
host weekly events that will make you want to keep coming back! Their most recent event is a fried cake eating contest; the winner gets free fried cakes for a year! Don’t miss this fun event tomorrow, September 10th at 2 p.m.
G and S Orchards: This apple orchard provides ‘You Pick’ apple-picking hours along with a farm stand where you can buy produce from all of the farm’s fields! G and S is located just one mile east of the Penfield Town Line, making it a
convenient location for whether you are looking to spend a day at the orchard, or just stop by for a quick visit. Make sure to stop at an atm before visiting, this quaint family farm is cash only.
The Apple Farm: This Apple Farm has made tremendous improvements since a fire burned down their store earlier in the year. In their words, “We will grow from the experience- like a heavily pruned tree growing vigorously from its loss.” The farm has everything from apple picking to cider slushies and a new and improved shop full of jams, baked goods and more. As a thank you from The Apple Farm to the community, they are providing all customers with a 20% off coupon.
Whether you pick the farm you are going to visit for its activities or its variety of apples, we’ve done the research so you can celebrate accordingly! If Penfield weren’t already the ideal place to live, it’s Fall-festive community makes it even more appealing! Contact us today!
