Apple Picking!

Get your youngsters ready to pick a peck of plump, delicious apples. OK, so you might not really need 10.5 pounds (i.e., an entire peck) of apples, but your youngsters can still enjoy picking some anyway! Apple season is in full swing, so why not head over to County Line Orchard in Hobart, Ind. or Apple Holler in Sturtevant, Wis. Just remind your kids, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”
Where: County Line Orchard: 200 S. County Line Road, Hobart, Ind.  //  Apple Holler: 5006 S. Sylvania Ave., Sturtevant, Wis.
When: County Line Orchard: 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Daily.  //  Apple Holler: 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Daily.
