Apple Picking 2022 - Harrisburg, PA - BHHS Homesale Realty

Fall is almost here, and you know what that means—time for apple picking! The area around our Harrisburg homes for sale has plenty of pick-your-own apple farms for your family's next weekend outing. Here are a few of the orchards we are returning to year after year.

  1. Mt. Airy Orchards – 522 East Mount Airy Road, Dillsburg, PA 17019
    Mt. Airy Orchards' picturesque fields are brimming with 25 varieties of apples, including Mutsu, Daybreak Fuji, and Crimson Crisp. Whether you like your apples sweet or tart, they have something for everyone. For customers' convenience, the orchard is open every day during the fall.

    If you're hungry after your apple picking adventure, stop by Karen's Kitchen for baked treats like apple crisp and apple cider doughnuts, as well as heartier options like soups, burgers, and barbecued pulled pork. Families with kids near our Dillsburg homes for sale will also enjoy the Summer and Fall Fun Adventure Area, a sprawling play place with pedal karts, tether ball, playground equipment, and more. 

  2. Strites' Orchard - 1000 Strites Road, Harrisburg, PA 17111
    Strites' Orchard has been owned and operated by the same family for over 100 years. The owners are proud to be running one of the oldest farms in the area. Recently, they've spent some time focusing on sustainability efforts, including their Community Supported Agriculture program, which allows them to plant their crops in eco-friendly seasons and patterns.

    You can pick your own delicious apples right from their orchard seven days a week. Most of their trees grow good old-fashioned apple varieties like Macintosh and Granny Smith, but you'll also find a few rarer varieties like Jonathan, Jonagold, and Stayman Winesap. 

  3. Cherry Hill Orchards - 400 Long Lane, Lancaster, PA 17603
    Cherry Hill Orchards has been running for 52 years straight, and yes, despite their name, they do grow apples too! Forty-five varieties of them, in fact, including hard-to-find gems like Red Rubin, Macoun, Modi, and Smokehouse apples. We love stopping by to grab a fresh bag of them after a trip to our Lancaster homes for sale!

    After you've gathered your fill of apples, head down to the Farm Market to add some more goodies to your haul. This quaint shop is filled with baked treats, jams and jellies, homemade salsas, jarred and fresh fruits and vegetables, and fresh apple cider for all of your fall snacking needs. 

  4. Susquehanna Orchards - 560 Orchard Road, Delta, PA 17314
    Susquehanna Orchards has been in business since 1922, making this year their 100th anniversary. They're still going strong with many delicious apple varieties available to pick, including EverCrisp, Gold Rush, and Pink Lady. Our real estate agents love using their apples in all of their fall recipes. 

    There is also a small shop on the premises where you can buy locally-sourced milk, eggs, cheese, meats, and other types of fresh produce. It's a great place to get a taste of the local foods available near our Delta homes for sale. Stock up your pantry and put it all together for the ultimate fall feast!

  5. Orchard Valley Farm – 8773 Yellow Church Road, Seven Valleys, PA 17360
    Orchard Valley Farm is a gorgeous independent farm near our Seven Valleys homes for sale that spans 98 acres of grassy, rolling hills. The farm grows an impressive 22 varieties of apples in their orchards, including Ginger Gold, Dala, Cameo, and Nittany. 

    Each variety of apple ripens during a different time of year, so check the handy schedule on their website to see when your favorite will be available. On your way out, you can complete your fall outing with a trip through the farm's corn maze and pumpkin patch. 

With a comfortable home in the area, you could enjoy the fruits of Harrisburg's vibrant farming community all year. Contact us today to take a closer look at any of the homes we currently have listed in this pastoral part of Pennsylvania.
