Apple picking is a fall staple in the Berkshires, and we’ve compiled a list of some of our readers' favorite local orchards below. It is suggested that you call ahead just to make sure the orchards still have apples to pick, as apple season can be finicky around these parts.
Did I miss something? Please feel free to send me your favorite area orchard or patch via email at email@example.com.
Publisher's Note for 2023: Please be advised that recent and ongoing weather challenges in New England have significantly impacted local apple crops and, consequently, the ability of local businesses to offer apple picking opportunities. We kindly ask for your understanding and patience as these circumstances may lead to limited availability and changes in scheduling. The resilience of both the community and the orchards is greatly appreciated during these trying times.
