If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I resisted fall for a long time. After all, I'm always cold as it is and the dropping temperatures don't help with that. However, last Saturday was the perfect fall day - blue skies, crisp air, and bright yellow leaves everywhere. It was an Apple Picking in Wisconsin kind of day.
A bit less than a year ago, we felt just as inspired to go apple picking and found a great place in Wisconsin - Apple Holler. Their apples are so delicious that I'm still dreaming about them as of today. Further, they offer so many fun farm-inspired activities that I wanted to go back there, rather than finding a new place.
It turned out that we were not the only ones thinking that as we stood in line for 15 minutes to get the tickets. If you're wondering whether it's too late to go apple picking you'd be happy to hear that it's not and you still have two full weeks to go! Our favorite apples - Cameo - are actually ripe from mid- to the end of October.
After you purchase tickets for whatever size bag of apples you would like, you can start your adventure around the premises. Before getting on the little 'train' to the orchards, we made a stop at the pumpkin patch.

A little train towed by a tractor will then take you to the orchards where you can pick and sample any apples you would like.
Or just run around and have fun play hide and seek between the orchards.
By far my favorite apples are Cameos. They are the perfect combination of sweet and tart - and are super crisp. In other words, the only way I like my apples. 🙂
After you picked your favorite apples, you can walk or take the cute 'train' back to the main area and indulge in some home-made backed goods - Kyle couldn't resist the Apple Cider Donuts.
Apple Holler also set up a cute S'Mores station, a face painting booth, a corn maze, and much to my delight - a farm animal petting area.
You can see how I would immediately make new best friends while apple picking!
