Fall is my favorite time of year. It really is magical in Minnesota with the beautiful foliage and crisp air. But another perk of fall in MN is the abundant apple orchards!
Since you never really know if fall is coming or going, you really have no time to waste in visiting an orchard! This time around I visited the Afton Apple Orchard for the first time. Yes, I love picking apples, but to be honest I think I love picking out my “Orchard Outfit” more. (You all know what I’m talking about..) I decided to go with a fun poncho + a bright red hat a la Carmen San Diego. A safe and typical fall look, if I do say so myself.
After perusing the orchards, (and having an impromptu photo shoot) I had to make a beeline for the store. To my dismay, the apple cider donuts were SOLD OUT. I was able to pick up some apple butter, apple salsa, and some apple muffins and of course had to get some Honey Crisp Apples too! Fun Fact: Honey Crisp apples are native to Minnesota!
What are your favorite apple orchards or apple flavored foods?
