Where to Pick Apples in Connecticut

With the smell of autumn filling the air, its time to head to the orchards and pick your own apples for cider, pies and eating off the tree.


There's nothing quite like taking the family and retreating to a local farm on a fall afternoon. Freshly-pressed cider, a warm cider donut, the carving of a jack-o-lantern all contribute to each year's autumn memories, but there's also plenty of fun to be had outdoors.

It's apple season, and Connecticut is flush with orchards and farms with trees begging to be picked so they can contribute to your pies, homemade ciders and daily efforts to keep the doctor away.

The following farms and orchards in Fairfield and New Haven Counties provide pick-your-own apples, according to PickYourOwn.org:


Blue Jay Orchards


Drazen Orchards

Norton Brothers Fruit Farm

Zentek Farms


Silverman’s Farm


High Hill Orchard


Bishop’s Orchards


Beardsley Cider Mill

Visit PickYourOwn.Org for more info on each farm this picking season.
