Ready to bite into a crunchy apple?!
Fall is the perfect time to enjoy a day outdoors at the Oak Glen apple orchards. The weather is mild enough so that one can enjoy a complete day of apple picking at the orchard, tour the petting farm, shop and dine. There are over 30 independently owned & operated businesses in a 5 mile loop. Enjoy handpicking the best organic apples in town, order a slice of homemade apple pie ala mode. Try the freshly pressed fresh cider, buy two or more so you can share with a friend and have one to relish over the month.
