Top 10 Places to Enjoy Apple-Picking


Unless you’re a person grew up in the early 20th-century, or the rural northeast, the closest that most of us city folk have gotten to the harvest is watching a two-minute clip on the morning news.  But the harvest season is a tradition that goes back farther than our nation’s roots, and apple-picking in particular is a tradition that’s, well, about as American as the apple pie you make from it.
