September is on the horizon, which means it’s time to prep our pallets for apple picking season! There’s nothing that says ‘fall’ like making the first pie of the season after a long day outside spent with friends and family. 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!
