1. Fishkill Farms
Travel time: 1.5 hours by car
For over 100 years, the Morgenthau family has been operating the 270-acre Fishkill Farms (Tue-Sun 9am-5pm, reservations required). Part apple orchard, part vegetable farm and wholly irresistible, this outdoor destination offers a lot for visitors to love: seasonal events, birthday parties and of course, an extensive pick-your-own season. For $42, up to five people can fill up four quarts (two more people can be added for $5 each). Strawberry season kicks off in June, followed by blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and other summer fruits. Expect peas, kale and herbs to also make an appearance mid-June. When autumn rolls around, head to Fishkill for your family apple and pumpkin picking soiree. If you're planning on enjoying PYO activities, you must visit the farm before 5pm.
