Go Apple Picking in the Clifton Park Area

Now that we're past the hottest season of the year, it's time for fall apple picking! Upstate New York is no stranger to apple orchards, and the Clifton Park area is home to many that grow a variety of apples.

Spend a fall day walking through an orchard and picking your favorite fruit. After you bring a bag or two home, you can eat them as a snack, bake them into a pie or cobbler, or make your own applesauce.

At some orchards and farms, treats like apple cider and doughnuts, hayrides, mazes, and much more are waiting for you and your family to enjoy. For example, Ellms Family Farm is located right in Ballston Spa and offers tons of fun each year!
