Pick-Your-Own Farms in the Hudson Valley: Fall 2017

Pick-Your-Own Farms in the Hudson Valley: Fall 2017

IT'S LOOKING LIKE A BANNER YEAR for this fall’s fruit and vegetable harvests in the Hudson Valley, and farms from Ghent to Gardiner to Granite Springs are gearing up with a wide variety of apples and pumpkins ready for pickin’. There’s only one thing better than spending a crisp fall afternoon enjoying the beauty of the fall foliage, picking a bushel of apples or the perfect Halloween pumpkin—and that’s going home to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Many farms now include on-site markets, complete with pre-picked produce and fresh-baked apple cider doughnuts or pies, and there are activities like haunted houses, hayrides and corn mazes. So, check our up-to-date listings, double-check the farms’ websites for schedules and availability, pack up the family and... see you at the farm!

From The Editor
Much was gained but something was lost when the language police tried to eliminate gender in occupational references. A fisherman became an angler (nobody liked the term fisherwoman, anyway); stewards and stewardesses became flight attendants.
