Pick Your Own Apples

I am pretty sure it is obvious that picking your own apples would make the list! But this part is a lot of fun! And you don’t have to pick your own apples. Sky Top Orchard offers plenty of apples already picked and ready to take home with you. But if you do want to pick your own apples, you’ll be given a map of where to find all the apples in season. The girls love this part because they get to be “explorers” and follow the map. You can find the picking schedule on the Sky Top Orchard here.

Enjoy Fresh Made Apple Cider Donuts

A trip to Sky Top Orchard isn’t complete without indulging in apple cider donuts. The donuts are made on site, while you watch! You won’t be able to miss these because the smell of them cooking will lead you straight to them. Make sure to eat one while it’s freshly made and then grab some to bring back with you!

Fresh Apple Cider

The apple cider is made on site and fresh! Sky Top Orchard uses a blend of 10 different apple varieties to make this and it is so delicious! You can pick some up to take with you or enjoy a frozen apple cider slushie while you are there. Since it was extra hot this weekend, the slushies were the obvious choice and were a great way to cool us off!

Enjoy a hayride around the orchard when you visit Sky Top Orchard! We decided to skip this one this time because it was hotter than we were expecting. But if you go during fall or cooler weather, this is a must! It’s a fun and relaxing way to see all of the Orchard and kids love it!

  1. This looks like so much fun! We haven’t visited any orchards but seeing all of the great activities available at Sky Top makes me want to find an orchard to visit with my littles.

  2. This looks like so much fun! I bet your kids had the best time. We love to visit orchards and pumpkin patches in the fall.

  3. Sky Top Orchard looks like such a fun place to visit with children. I wish we had something like that near to me – I’d definitely be heading there (and trying those delicious looking apple cider doughnuts, of course!)

  4. I love picking apples when we were still living in New York we used to go to the local farm . This place reminds me of that happy moment we have one here but a little bit smaller. Where is this Orchard?

  5. We have similar things out here, but I’ve never done them! I’m looking forward to taking my son when he’s a little older. We can enjoy together!

  6. I LOVE the “how tall this fall” sign – such a cute tradition!!! I’m obsessed with those apple doughnuts – every fall I hunt for them wherever I’m living. What kind of apple is your favorite?
