Hometown Tuesday: Country Apple Orchard
One of the most popular fall activities to participate in is apple picking! This is usually a huge tradition for families. Since my family was in town, we took a trip to Harrisburg, South Dakota to visit the Country Apple Orchard.
The Country Apple Orchard is located just 5 miles south of Sioux Falls on Minnesota Avenue. There are 6,000 apple trees on the property with 13 kinds of apples to pick from, such as Connell Red, Haralson, McIntosh, and Fireside. In addition to the apple orchard, there are seven acres of pumpkin patches for pumpkin picking! It's two fall activities for the price of one!
During their season, Country Apple Orchard hosts different fall festivals. There's even a "Harvest Festival" next weekend and the "Pumpkin Festival" the following week. Other festivals include the "Family Fun Festival" and the "Apple Festival." On top of all this fun, the apple orchard offers train and pony rides for the kids!
It's not a bad idea to stop in the Country Apple Orchard shop to find all things apple, like the freshest apple pies, apple turnovers, and apple cider! Apples not found in the orchard are available for purchase as well. These apples include Honey-crip and SweeTango.
Visit the Country Apple Orchard for more information on their orchard and all the fall fun they have to offer!
