Are you looking for something to do this fall? Shut the T.V. off, unplug the computer (after you print this off), put down your phone and get active with your family this fall.
Put on your favourite rubber boots, grab that cozy sweater and get ready for some fun. Get your family and friends together to pick apples at local orchards (some are listed below). This is a great way to get your steps in and teach your kids about the benefits of agriculture. After you are done picking the apples, show off all your hard work by making apple pies, apple crisp and apple sauce! This is a great way to save money as you can freeze your baking and use it at Christmas.
