Best apple picking farms and orchards for families near NYC

We've rounded up the best farms and orchards in the tristate area for families to go apple picking this fall.

Labor Day weekend marks the start of apple picking season in the mid-Atlantic area, when dozens of orchards open to the public. We've rounded up our favorite farms to visit for a family day trip where you and your brood can go apple picking (one of our favorite things to do in NYC with kids in the fall), as well as hunt for pumpkins and other produce. Times, prices and availability vary, so phone ahead or you may find yourself, well, up a tree! For additional info on apple picking in the area, visit nyapplecountry.com or pickyourown.org.
