September in Cape Cod means it’s apple season. So why not do as the locals do? Go apple picking!
With the cool weather and gentle ocean breeze on Cape Cod there is no better place to pick a crisp, delicious apple. In fact, apples are a multi-million dollar industry in Massachusetts, pouring up to $15-million into the economy. The Bay State ranks 12th nationally in apple production.
Where To Pick Them Apples?
Cape Cod is loaded with apple orchards, brimming with fruit. There are three Cape Cod orchards in particular where you can pick your own apples – also called U-Pick farms – or where you can buy them by the pound.
- Peachtree Circle Farm in West Falmouth MA
- Crow Farm in Sandwich MA (Not a U-Pick farm)
- Hemeon Farm in Harwich MA
Apple picking is a fun way to spend the day with family and friends. Put on a warm sweater… and get ready to indulge on dozens of varieties of apples. Each variety has their own special quality. Some a great for apple pies. Others are great for applesauce. Some are sweet and some are tart. But, all of them are terrific after a great big bite!
