The fall season is the perfect time to enjoy some family-friendly fun by visiting local orchards to pick your own apples among the variety of homegrown produce, writes Ed Williams for Main Line Today

As a bonus, many orchards also offer many other essential fall—and Halloween—accessories. Decorate the outside of your house with items such as pumpkins and stalks of dried corn. 

Barnard’s Orchard in Kennett Square boasts more than 30 varieties of flavorful apples. The small family-run orchard also has an onsite store for seasonal treats and décor. 

Meanwhile, Highland Orchards in West Chester offers numerous varieties for your picking pleasure, along with a seven-pound to-go bag if you are strapped for time. If you visit on a weekend, you can enjoy the Fall Harvest event with freshly baked pies, seasonal pastries, and its famous hot apple cider donuts.
