Autumn Splendor

Autumn and apples… the two go hand in hand! Kids love taking a trip to local farms to pick their very own fruit, and moms love the prices, which are significantly less expensive than at the local grocery store. In the fall, enjoy apple picking at Alldredge Orchards in Platte City, Schweizer Orchards in St. Joseph, Cider Hill in Kansas City Kansas or the Wagon Wheel Orchard in Gardner. For a behind-the-scenes apple outing, visit the Louiburg Cider Mill, where you can watch cider and apple cider donut making while enjoying autumn attractions, including farm animals, a corn maze, the pumpkin patch and country store.
