Apple Picking Will Get You In the Autumn Spirit At These Orchards An Hour From Your Octagon Apartment

October 20, 2021

As the air cools and the leaves change colors, it’s obvious – fall is in the air here on Roosevelt Island! One of the best ways to get in the autumn spirit near our Octagon apartments is to head out to the orchard for a day of apple picking, an activity that’s just as fit for a six-year-old as it is for a 60-year-old.

Here near our Octagon apartments, we have tons of orchards that offer a day out on the farm complete with hay rides, cider doughnuts and more. As different varieties of apples are ripe at different times of the season, check these orchards’ websites to see if they have your favorite this weekend!

Demarest Farms, located at 244 Werimus Rd, Hillsdale NJ which is one hour from your Octagon apartment, is a quaint grocery store and nursery offering seasonal you-pick produce at a working farm that was founded in 1886.

With a variety of activities including peach picking, apple picking and pumpkin picking, the farm is the perfect spot for family fun. While you’re here, also check out the farm market that has plants, produce, fresh baked goods and more.

Orchards of Concklin, located at 2 S Mountain Rd, Pomona which is one hour from your Octagon apartment, has been a fixture in the area for over ten generations. Here, pick your own apples, visit the farm stand, taste fresh-pressed apple cider and head to the bakery for delicious pies, cookies and cakes.

Apple picking here is offered this season on Saturdays and Sundays only from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Don’t feel like making the trek this weekend? The Orchards of Concklin can also ship apples and baked goods directly to your Octagon apartment. Visit their website to learn more!
