Know Before You Go

🎃  Call ahead to check on conditions and the types of apples available for picking.

🎃  Some orchards require reservations this year to allow for social distancing, check to see if this is necessary before you go!

🎃  Dress appropriately for the outdoors and for potentially changing weather conditions. Terrain in orchards is usually grassy and bumpy with hills to climb/come down. Don’t forget your masks!

🎃  If you want to bring your dog, check ahead of time. Some orchards do not allow pets.

🎃  Don’t forget to bring your camera!

🎃  Definitely bring snacks… many of the orchards are a bit of a drive from Greenwich.
