Pick-Your-Own Apples in NJ

Get outside at these pick-your-own apple farms this fall for a great family-bonding experience.


Published:

Nothing says fall like taking the kids apple picking at a farm. The crispy fruit is a perfect lunchbox snack, and the kids will love eating what they plucked with their own hands. Make your visit even more fun by going during a harvest festival. Call before you go to make sure the kids can pick that day (weather permitting) and find out which variety is best.
