I’ve had so many people ask me where to go apple picking close to NYC, and until now, I didn’t have a strong suggestion. Yesterday I went on a school field trip to Terhune Farm, close to Princeton, New Jersey. It’s such a great farm for apple picking, getting pumpkins and mums (which normally I don’t like, but theirs were beautiful)…and plenty of other things to do, like feed the farm animals, play on the wooden tractor, corn maze, etc. Since I was with the school, I couldn’t get out and explore the area, but it’s right by Lawrenceville and Princeton, so there are lots of options to build around a visit to the farm. The apples are not organic, but the farm uses a natural chemical from the oil of pyrethrum which they get from the mums they grow. They do grow a lot of other produce that is organic. It’s prime-time this weekend for foliage, and the weather looks to be great for both Saturday and Sunday. If you have other suggestions or favorite spots, please share here!
