Last weekend I took my kids apple picking at Stribling Orchard located in Markham, Virginia. It was perfect! It was so much fun to walk around, and pick apples with the kids. I have never been apple picking, but everyone there was really nice. They provided a map with a listing of all the apple trees they had - which was really helpful. You could even have a picnic there! Not only did they offer apples to pick, but they had apple cider, jams, jellies, fresh eggs, and baked goods to buy.
I picked over half a bushel of apples, and I plan on making so many apple recipes!
