The Fruits of our Labor

farm apple web

There is nothing more peaceful and lovely than spending time on the farm in the fall. And if you can top it off with an awesome harvest of Golden Delicious Apples?

it’s pure heaven.

Earlier this month we took a trip up to our family farm to pick apples. It is one of my most favorite memories of the farm. I spent a few falls there during my youth as well as weekend trips up as I got older and started raising my own family.

There’s nothing better than being able to pick an apple right off the tree. I do have my favorites.


Sadly Jordan couldn’t come up so my sister and her daughter drove up with me and Kass this go around. My younger brother came up that morning.

I think we were all in awe at the apples.

Isn’t it funny how something so simple as eating an apple straight from a tree can be so amazing?

We did a little sorting as we went. There were boxes for yellow, green and one with a bird peck or two.

And the apples weren’t the only thing in abundance. Check out these grapes!

Everywhere you look on the farm…it’s a thing of beauty.

I love it here.

One last ‘fall’ note.

This ends tomorrow. Have you stocked up? :)

    Kerri, I’m pretty new to your site and I’m so glad I found it!! The apples look yummy! I’m not sure if you make applesauce or not but if you’re interested get yourself a Victorio Food Strainer & Sauce Maker…hands down the best and easiest way to make applesauce. We did two bushels in 3 hours and that was set up to clean up. Nothing better than homemake applesauce…one batch is cinnamon and one is vanilla. Our freezer is full! : )
