Over the weekend, we celebrated the Harvest Moon and went apple picking. It’s one of our favorite family traditions and a perfect way to kick off autumn. Although there are lots of orchards nearby, I spent awhile searching for an organic one. It turns out that there are only four organic orchards in all of New York State, so we were grateful when we found one just 35-minutes away.
We went to Slate Hill Orchard and had the most amazing day. The orchard is on the smaller side, but we went on a Friday afternoon so we practically had the whole place to ourselves. The orchard is on the sweetest little farm. There are pretty fields, a beautiful pond, and wildflowers growing everywhere. It was so peaceful. There was no noise except for the tractor passing by and the occasional chirping of birds.
Roman had a blast picking apples from the trees. He ate five while we were out there! After picking, we made our way back to the market where we picked up a feast for lunch. Homemade quiche, lobster bisque, organic juices, and cookies & apple cider donuts for dessert. We ate beneath an umbrella in the outdoor seating area.
It was an absolutely gorgeous day. Perfect weather, well-behaved babies, and delicious food. Several times that day, I said that I felt like the luckiest Mama in the world. And I truly am.
I hope that you had the loveliest weekend, friends. Here’s to a beautiful week.
