Exploring & Escapades

bits & pieces of my travels

Tag: Apple Picking



Back at Sweet Berry Farm, this time for… apples! Fun fact: I discovered the farm a few years ago when searching for a place to pick apples south of Boston. And now, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been.

I was so excited to make the trip here while I was home. It was an absolute priority. Since I had a wedding to go to that weekend, we went on a Monday after my brother finished school for the day. Definitely not a traditional time to go apple-picking, but it was great – we basically had the entire orchard to ourselves, and it was *such* a beautiful, warm fall day. There was even a magazine crew on site staging the chicest wedding shoot!

If I lived here year-round, I’d be back in December for a Christmas tree. Since I don’t, it’ll be next summer for berries. Until then, Sweet Berry Farm.


Sweet Berry Farm, Again

I know I post pictures from this little farm in Rhode Island all the time; it’s because it really, truly is one of my favorite places in all of the world. That’s why I wanted to come here with my brother and sister for my last day in America before moving to England. It was such a weird day – cloudy, hazy, even rainy on the drive down – but we didn’t let that stop us from picking bunches of apples, feasting on banana bread, and frolicking in the sunflowers. This is one of the things that I’m definitely going to miss the most.

Back to visit one of my most favorite places with my entire family. Apple picking, raspberry picking, pumpkin picking, ice cream, & frolicking in the wildflowers.

Apples in Ipswich

Russel Orchard

Apple tree

Russel Orchard StoreNew England fall is beautiful. The air is crisp, the sun is out, the trees are a rainbow. It’s a true gift, a gift to be lived. This weekend, fall led us to Russel Orchards in Ipswich on the North Shore of Massachusetts. There are hay rides, pumpkins, animals, farm stands, and of course, never-ending fields of apple orchards. You can never pick too many apples, in my opinion. And the town itself, Ipswich, is lovely. Farms and foliage. History and art museums. An old main street. It’s something from a storybook.
