Here’s Where To Go Apple Picking Near New York City

September 30, 2020

It may only be the start of fall in New York City, but it’s actually the perfect time to go apple picking! Right now, apples are ripe for the picking at nearby apple farms and are ready for use in pies, cakes and other dishes, as well as tasty right off the branch.

This weekend, take the whole family to one of these apple farms located near your Octagon apartment. With their hayrides, farm markets, mazes and children’s activities, you can make a whole day of it, ringing in autumn in the most festive way possible.

Harvest Moon Farm & Orchard, located at 130 Hardscrabble Rd, North Salem NY which is one hour from your Octagon apartment, is a family owned and operated apple orchard which also raises antibiotic and hormone-free, organic animals.

Their main harvest is in September with apples but they also grow a variety of vegetables and stone fruits which ripen summer through fall and are available at the farm store. First-generation farmers run the business and have been expanding on their offerings every year since 2011 when they began.

Outhouse Orchards, located at 139 Hardscrabble Rd, North Salem which is one hour from your Octagon apartment, is a pick-your-own apple farm which has become a lasting family tradition for countless families. 

Each variety of apple ripens at different times, so make sure you check out their website before your visit so you can get your favorite varieties. They also offer a 15-minute hayride where you will get a great glimpse of all of their gardens, apple trees and breathtaking views of farming in the Hudson Valley.
