With its farms and orchards, Vermont is quintessential New England. In fall, visitors travel from far and wide to spend a sunny day picking apples. Here’s a list of apple orchards to visit.
This seven-generation apple orchard sits on an island in the middle of Lake Champlain. Allenholm Farm & Apple Orchard has 25 acres of apples and also fresh cherries, raspberries, and blueberries at the farm stand during the summer months. Stop by for fresh produce, homemade applesauce, and a cider slushy. Their Maple Creamee (soft serve ice cream) is also a favorite summer treat!
Pumpkins, apples, cider – Chapin Orchard has it all. Only 20 minutes from Burlington, it’s the perfect out-of-the-city pit stop. Pick several different varieties of apples, or go for the classic McIntosh which Chapin Orchard has the most of, to make delicious apple pies. In the farm shop, you can also purchase pumpkins and fresh apple cider. They make it on-site (visit on a Thursday and you can watch the whole process). Different apples are used for the cider at different points of the year, so check back to try out new varieties.
