A few weekends ago some friends and I headed up to Jones Creek Farms to do some apple picking. They have a huge number of trees available for you to wander among and pick. You’re encouraged to take a taste of everything. It’s a lot of fun, wear shoes you don’t mind getting muddy. They have a few carts you can use if you’re planning on bringing back a huge amount of apples.
The farm is located in the Skagit Valley and you can see mountains in all directions. The day we went was overcast and misty.
I have never really shined an apple before, it really works!
We found a few of the famed Bramley trees. There weren’t many apples left for this season.
This Asian pear tasted a bit like butterscotch, it was amazing.
They have a baby cow! They also have chickens and sell cider. If you’re there ask about buying eggs and garlic as well.
