Last weekend we went apple-picking at Sweetland Orchard. We’ve been to several orchards in the area and Sweetland is our favorite because it’s just apples, nothing else. There are no hay rides, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, playgrounds, etc. While those things can be fun, they sort of take away from the experience in a way. We like Sweetland because the people are friendly, the apples are plentiful and they have a great dog named Fletcher who always wants to play. This year they also had some tame chickens & turkeys that were hanging around looking for food. It was a perfect fall day to pick apples.
