Sometimes it can seem like the weekend is already spoken for and it can be a challenge to work in your favorite fall activities. Don't stress about it and don't make yourself nuts trying to pack in a storybook day at the orchard if it's really not in the cards. 

Let's be honest, the more ambitious your apple picking plans are, the more time you will need--for travel, for the hot donuts, for the pumpkin patch, for the hayride--and that's all before you even pick your first apple!

If you’re short on time, seek out a local orchard so you can spend your time amongst the rows of fruit, not driving in your car. If you’re really only looking to pick apples—and only apples- select a straightforward orchard that is tailored just to fruit picking. In fact, consult one of our interactive state maps to identify an orchard set apart from the others--why? Less traffic! You won't find yourself bottlenecked with every other orchard-goer heading to the same apple region at the same time.

Tips for Apple Picking with Kids – Sometimes less is more. If your budget doesn’t allow for the pony rides, pumpkin picking, or an ice cream treat at the end, then stick to the still very fun, no- frills, apple-only orchards.
