Apple Picking in Greater Rochester, NY and the Finger Lakes
Pick your own apples in Rochester and the surrounding counties!
One great way to get your kids to eat more fruit -- and introduce them to the subtleties of sweet/tangy tastes -- is by taking them apple picking to a local orchard. Below are places to go and things to do for a day in the orchard all around Rochester.
If a grower does not have a web site listing hours, PLEASE call first to make sure they are open! (This is experience talking!)
