Over the weekend, G and I ventured out of the city to the spacious apple orchards of Fishkill, NY. Surrounded by the other “leaf peepers”, we did the most quintessianal basic couple activity around- took Instagram-worthy photos of us picking apples. Now G spent a long time researching different apple orchards within a 2 hour drive of NYC, and landed on Fishkill Farms. It’s a wonderful small scale sustainable farm and apple orchard. Seriously, they have FIELDS of eco-certified apples that won’t leave your mouth tingling from chemical pesticides. From now until Oct 29, they are running a Fall Harvest festival with apple picking, fresh apple cider donuts, live music, wagon rides, a corn maze and fresh (hard) cider tastings. G and I weren’t actually into apple picking (don’t let the staged photos fool you), but we drawn into the live music, super fancy food truck (hello, truffle fries!), and the PYOV, where we picked as many cherry tomatoes as our hands could carry. It was such a wonderful day trip, complete with a dinner stop in Sleepy Hallow for the ultimate Fall festival. Enjoy the apple-related recipe, coming soon. – A
