Ahhhh, fall.  So many things to look forward to: the crisp air, the bright blue skies, the crunchy leaves, the vibrant leaves changing, the spiced drinks, the comfy sweaters.  Minnesota never really disappoints during the fall.  And no proper fall is complete without a trip to one of the apple orchards in the Rochester area!

The apple orchard is an essential Minnesota fall tradition, no? It’s hard to pick our favorite part of the annual (okay, okay: bi-weekly) fall trek to the orchard is: hunting and picking the *perfect* apple, enjoying the caramel apple treat while browsing the pumpkin patch, or the smells that fill the kitchen when you begin to bake up your apples into tasty treats and pastries after you’ve brought your haul home (high five, cinnamon!)

Lucky for us, the Rochester area has several apple orchards (and pumpkin patches!) to choose from.  If your favorite orchard is not on the list, please submit it using the form at the end of this post.
