Apple Ridge Orchards

Pin It Apple Ridge Orchards, Warwick, NY
My family planned this outing a few weeks ago and when I woke up I looked out my window it was raining but heard on the radio that it was going to stop in a few hours. I was happy we ended up going since the rain was gone by the afternoon. I have never gone apple picking before so I was excited. I hadn't been feeling well the last few days with what I thought was allergies that turned into a cold. Good thing I bought something in the morning to help, and I felt better by the afternoon.

Pumpkins

Sugar Pumpkins

Apples
Due to the rain, the grounds were muddy and some spots were slippery so I walked with caution. My family had a nice time except my Mom. She was too cold and had trouble walking in the muddy grounds with her cane. After a short while she had to sit in the car and just wait for us but I cannot blame her. She is 88 after all. Other than that, everything went great.

We ate a bite from Brian's Backyard BBQ and it was yummy. My Mom ordered ribs, my sister in law got the pulled pork and the rest of us got flame-broiled burgers. The apple cider donuts were so good! I only bought half a dozen and should have purchased more. I ate the last one this morning with coffee.

Apple picking was fun as well but due to the mud, you had to watch where you were going.

My sister in law took my nephew to the petting zoo and he enjoyed it. There were cute piggies running around the grounds and I also saw geese.
