Apple Pick At These Orchards Near Your Sagamore Apartment

The fall may just be getting started, but apple picking season definitely doesn’t wait until the leaves start falling – actually, now is the best time to get started on your apple picking near the Upper West Side!

If you want to hand-pick some apples that you can cook up (or just munch on!) in your Sagamore kitchen, then visit these apple orchards for a true taste of early fall. Make sure you stock up – you’ll have a hard time eating grocery store apples after trying these!

Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard, located at 130 Hardscrabble Rd, North Salem which is about one hour from your Sagamore apartment, is a family-owned and -operated orchard which hosts a fall festival every weekend of September and October.

Home to apple picking as well as hayrides, live music, games, farm animals, and ‘apple cannons’ (custom-made and mounted potato guns that you load with apples and shoot at targets), this is a great apple picking destination for the whole family!

Fishkill Farms, located at 9 Fishkill Farm Rd, Hopewell Junction which is about an hour and 15 minutes from your Sagamore apartment, is a farm and orchard that has been owned by the same family for almost 100 years and is known for their popular Fall Harvest Festival on weekends through the end of October.

Besides their live music, hayrides, and freshly baked donuts, the farm’s grill cooks up burgers, hot dogs, and Jamaican jerk chicken which are perfect alongside their apple cider bar!
