Nothing says fall like taking the kids to a farm to pick your own apples. 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 you can pick your own apples that day (weather permitting) and find out which variety is best.
