Apple Picking in Kansas City
It's apple picking season! Each of the u-pick Apple Farms on our list is a locally owned family operation designed to provide the best in healthy produce and a great family outing. So, grab the camera and the cooler and take the kids on a trip they won’t forget!
Apple Picking Season: Mid-August through October.
Apple Picking Tips:
- Call the farm for a picking report before you leave to make sure apples are ready for picking. Some farms have limited availability and it can vary even within a few hours. It is VERY important that you call first, we have encountered farms having apples in the morning and running out before the afternoon.
- Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
- Bring bottled water and snacks for the kids.
- Don’t forget your camera… apple picking makes great photos for the scrapbook.
- Check out “KC Going Places” for fun places to visit near the orchard of your choice!
