No Frills Apple Picking at Wilkens Fruit and Fir Farm

Come fall, my girls love to go apple picking. Who doesn’t. The crispness in the air, roaming in and out of orchards, eating fresh, newly picked apples right off the tree…there’s nothing more quintessential “fall” than going apple picking. On a recent day off from school – one of those cloudless, deep blue September days – I decided to take the girls early and get a head start. I wanted to go somewhere that wasn’t one of these big attraction type farms, with all the bells and whistles, and with big crowds. I wasn’t in the mood for crowds. After doing a search, I settled on Wilkens Fruit and Fir Farm, in Yorktown Heights, NY. View Post
