The school year is in full swing, the nights are getting cooler and pumpkin spice lattes have made their return, which can only mean one thing: Fall has arrived! The crisp smell of fall always makes me nostalgic – bringing me back to my childhood and some of my favorite fall activities, like picking apples straight from the tree and carving pumpkins I meticulously picked out from the pumpkin patch.
Over the years, the offerings at many fall picking locations have expanded to include things like face painting, giant slides, apple cider donuts, corn mazes and petting zoos. Depending on what you’re looking for – a day out with the kids or a quiet stroll through the orchards – here is your guide to fall picking locations.
Please note that because of our wacky Wisconsin weather, some locations may not be offering pick your own options. Be sure to check their website before you head out as many of their offerings change on a weekly basis.
