Since I was young, I have been dreaming about seeing an apple tree with lots of fruits overflowing in it. And now, it just came true. It is another box ticked off in my list! Great!
One of the “must-do” things to do during autumn is apple picking. Fortunately, NY has many apple orchards. It is my first time to experience autumn and I feel like I need to do this activity. So we searched for the 5 starred apple orchard in upstate NY and we found Masker Orchard.
The weather was cloudy with cold winds gently blowing and the sun was peeping from time to time. It was a perfect day to pick apples. Masker Orchard is a 200-acre farmland which has (from our experience) two kinds of apple – red and green. hahaha ( I don’t know exactly what name they have for each species. For me, it is just green and red.) Also, they sell some apple goodies like apple cider donuts, apple pie, apple ciders, and stuff that can be possibly apple flavored. hahaha! They also sell pumpkins. We did not bother to buy pumpkins but we did take a lot of pictures with it!
I think a half day is enough for apple picking unless you just wanna stay there for a picnic with your family. One full bag of apples will cost you $30. So you got to maximize the space but if you have just half of the bag then you will just pay according to weight.
Overall it was a memorable experience and what makes it special is because it was with cool friends who share the same passion with selfies and love posing in front of the camera!
Here is a raw video summing up our wonderful and memorable experience doing the apple picking!
