Let’s Go Apple Picking!

By: Briana Dixon | September 14, 2022

Those apples aren’t going to pick themselves! Time to pull out the cozy sweaters and boots and get ready to enjoy deliciously fresh apples and fall treats. Apple Orchards are fun for just about everyone. Most of them offer U-pick, along with other activities like hayrides, mazes, and petting farms. Here’s where to find an orchard near you!

Long Family Orchard and Farm

Long Family Orchard and Farm has been serving the commerce area since 2007. This seasonal apple orchard has apples of all kinds available for picking, along with vegetables. Their website even includes an ‘all about apples’ section, where the team goes through what purposes different kinds of apples can serve, their nutritional value, and recipes for treats like apple nut squares and apple dessert cake.
