NJMOM’s Apple Picking Guide

Share the love

Crisp air, fall activities and pumpkin & apple everything – it’s almost fall in New Jersey, mamas. We’re celebrating a little early with some of our fave spots to go apple picking around the great Garden State. From hayrides to educational programs for your little ones, all of the orchards on our list have something fun for the whole fam. As always, we highly recommend calling the farm ahead of your visit because openings change due to weather and other stuff we have no control over. Each name of the farm is linked directly to their website, or call the phone number listed to chat with them in person. If you’re looking for kid-friendly pumpkin picking spots, head over to NJMOM’s Pumpkin Picking Guide.

Psst! We love sharing your adventures around New Jersey. Be sure to tag your apple-picking photos with #NJMOM and @njmom for a chance to be featured.
