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!
•Don’t forget your masks!
•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. Also, due to COVID-19, many orchards will not have tractor rides this year which will mean lots of walking!
•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.
