Apple Picking at Half Crown Hill Orchard

On September 26, the kids had  their Johnny Apple Seed day celebration at school.  I am sure that they had fun as   the homeroom Moms prepared fun activities for them. They also get  some treat bags.  
To top all the fun, we went to an apple orchard in Oakdale Pennsylvania called Half Crown Hill.   One of the engineers of the company where my husband works owns the orchard and he coordinated this event for a cause.  The company's employees and family were the only ones who were there at the orchard that day.
 The orchard is not that big but there's plenty of apples to pick.  I was amazed of how much fruits each tree has.  There were different kinds of apples.  Some are not ready for picking yet.  The prices of apples   varieds depending on what kind it is.
 You can either  buy  the apples that are already picked and displayed at the   receiving/reception/store area or you can pick your own.  The prices  of the apples also varies  on  how big the bag is.
Picking apples  reminds me of the aplle tree that we used to have in our backyard.  Over the years, the said apple   died  and we chopped it off.  We have never  gone apple picking before in an orchard  so this was our first time.  
 The kids were  very picky, they  search for the biggest they could find lol.  It was a good exercise as we  went around the whole orchard trying to find the best apples that we could find.
 My son has very good eyes in finding the  biggest apples in the orchard.  We all had fun  picking.
 I was  just in awe  of how much fruits  are in each tree, it's amazing.
 We will definitely do this again in the coming years.  We love  eating apple as snack so it's a must have in our kitchen.

I will continue our adventures on the next post.   Our fun did not end in apple picking, we did some activities as well.  I will also  post  the apple pie that  our 9 year old pastry chef  baked for us.  Thank you for visiting and for leaving your comments.

I remember taking my granddaughters to an orchard on lovely fall day. What is fun is the learning that goes on with such jaunts! I can't believe how big your darlings are getting.

Isn't that amazing, apple picking is just wonderful for family to go and spend time together. the bond and togetherness is what we can always close with our family.

I love going to orchards! Although I have to say that I'm a bit jealous because I don't think I've ever seen trees so plentiful.

Your kids look they had so much fun at the orchard...I never had an experience like that, the closest thing we could have is at a mango farm:)

I have always wanted to go apple picking or for berries as an adult. I have not been to any type of picking event since I was 4 in Sweden!
