TERRIBLE poison ivy problem! All around trees on the ground. Got a bad case after apple picking even though we were careful!

We loved the apple cider doughnuts! So delicious! And they had these tiny, adorable gingerbread mug buddies to perch on your coffee cup. Tasty! It is a beautiful farm up on a hill.

We come here a lot. We get our apples and all of our fall treats here. It's a great family run business. Gorgeous scenery all around, it's a great way to spend the day with the family or with friends.

Apple picking since 1745! So many varieties of apples. Plus all kinds of pies, donuts, apple cider and lots more! They have other special activities during the season as well.

I live in the Danbury area and this is by far the best place nearby to go apple picking. I've tried them all (Blue Jay, Outhouse Orchards, etc.) Well worth the drive up to Washington Depot. NO CROWDS, tons of apples, beautiful view overlooking surrounding...More
