Apple Picking at Connors FarmThis was a great small orchard for picking apples, They also have pumpkins and others fruits and veggies. It is free to get in and you only pay for the bag to fill with apples (which was a reasonable price). We didn't do the maize or the hay ride and the apples are not labeled by kind, but it is very relaxed and easy to get around. I would recommend it to anyone in the area, especially because the price it right. It was quite busy in terms of parking and paying but it was not crowded on a Sat. afternoon for picking in mid Sept. Hope other families can enjoy as well.
