Go Apple-Picking In Hartford, New Haven Counties

There's nothing better than locally grown apples (except maybe pies made with locally grown apples) - here's your complete guide to local orchards in and around the Southington area.

Fall = Apples.

But this season, if you're looking to get your hands on the fresh-picked fruit, you should go soon.

Many local residents enjoy the hometown option in Southington, traveling to Roger's Orchards. But there are so many other options throughout the area - you better go soon though before the best apples are gone!

"The apples are early this year thanks to a mild winter and spring so if you're planning to go apple picking, it would be smart to go soon," said Abbie Walston, whose family own Rose Orchards in North Branford.
