The apple crop on the Byway is a prime one this year. Plenty of juicy, flavorful, ripe fruit still hangs on the tree for easy picking. You will not find better prices for apples than pick-your-own. There are three large orchards along the Byway that cater to the pick-your-own market. The three are Bowman’s Orchards, 141 Sugar Hill Road; Lindey’s Idyllwood Orchard, 267 Sugar Hill Road; and Riverview Orchards, 660 Riverview Road, all in Rexford. I have my favorite, but each of these orchards is unique. Explore each and figure out which you like best.
One orchard has signature apple cider doughnuts made fresh before your eyes by the doughnut robot, another has the freshest apple cider sold in bulk, all have fresh home baked fruit desert items, and two offer hay rides and farm animals to admire. What better way to introduce your family to home grown food from the agricultural area right on the Byway.
While you are at it, enjoy the rich fall foliage at its peek, now.
