Who loves apple picking in the fall? 🙋

If you’re looking for spots to go in New Brunswick, you’re in luck. Due to the province’s unique microclimates we just so happen to be one of the best spots to grow apples in Canada. And with tons of different varieties to choose from, you’ll have no trouble picking a favourite for your baked desserts or your snacks. (Honeycrisp, anyone?)

The season typically kicks off in September, lasting through October. Some farms and orchards will include wagon rides, corn mazes, country shops with homemade jams and ciders and much more. So gather up the kids or call up a friend, and head on out to a local farm for a quintessential fall afternoon in the orchard.
