Get ready to fall in love with fall all over again! September is here and along with it comes the season of vibrant foliage and pumpkin-spiced everything. There’s no better way to embrace autumn than by heading out to the orchards for some good old-fashioned apple picking.

What goes better with apple picking and pumpkin browsing than fresh Apple Cider and homemade cider donuts? Brooksby has it all! Stop by for barnyard animals, their Fall Fairytale Trail, fall hayrides, and weekend campfires and smores all fall long. 

  1. Connors Farm

Wanting a fun weekend activity? Connors Farm offers a corn maze, hayrides, pumpkin tetherball, and more! They always go above and beyond with their corn mazes. This year’s theme is “The Unexplained”, so the course is shaped into many different mythical creatures.
