When September rolls around, do what the locals do – go apple pickin’! And there’s no better place to pick a crisp, delicious apple than in Massachusetts and Cape Cod.
Massachusetts-grown apples pour up to $15 million into the economy. In fact, the Bay State ranks 12th nationally in apple production.
Cape Cod Apple Orchards
So where can you get them apples?
There are three Cape Cod farms that grow apples. Some of these are U-Pick farms – where you can pick your own apples – or you can buy them by the pound.
- Crow Farm in Sandwich MA (Not a U-Pick farm)
- Hemeon Farm in Harwich MA
Fun With Apples In The Fall
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!
