One of the greatest aspects of living in the Hudson Valley is the amount of beautiful farms that fill the area. No matter the season, Hudson Valley farms are wonderful to visit. Now that it is fall time the, farms are extra busy as the trees are plentiful with apples waiting to be picked.
I have visited many farms in the area and just recently discovered Dubois Farm in Highland, NY this past weekend. The farm was spacious yet filled with visitors picking apples, pears, peppers, grapes and pumpkins to name a few. The grounds of the farm were beautifully maintained and the staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly…and most importantly, they had delicious apple cider donuts, which are a staple for farms in the fall. 😉
We filled our wagon with lots of goodies which we hand-picked ourselves. Not only did we have a great time picking the fruit and vegetables but we were also delighted at what a great deal the produce was per pound.
Although we didn’t participate, there was a hayride, horse rides, and other activities to partake in on a beautiful fall day. They also served a variety of hot foods to enjoy amidst the picking and activities.
If you’re planning to visit a farm soon, I highly recommend Dubois Farm. Below are some pictures from our visit there. For more information, check out their website: http://www.duboisfarms.com.
