Apple Picking Near Philadelphia

This is the 2nd year for Derek and I to live together, and although we have been dating for 7 years - we spent 4 of those years as a long-distance couple, seeing each other about once a month or so. It's been fun for us to start new traditions within and near our home in Philadelphia. One of my new favorite traditions is apple picking at Solebury Orchards! This orchard is about an hour outside of the city and has everything, including apple picking, pumpkins, a cutting garden (I have to do this next time!), hot apple cider and, my favorite, apple cider donuts. Yum!

We were able to make it out for apple picking last Saturday. The rain didn't seem like it was going to stop all day, but later in the day the rain seemed to break and we made our trip to New Hope. It was still cloudy and a little bit dreary but that just gave us the perfect excuse for hot apple cider after picking apples for a bit. This cape coat (which is on sale now!) ended up being the most cozy layer to wear out on dreary day, it's literally like wearing a blanket out in public and it being socially acceptable - what could be better? Also, this year we definitely did a little bit better with how many apples we picked. Last year we managed to get carried away and accidentally pick 12 pounds of apples while this year we only picked 5 pounds of apples! Overall, this rainy day ended up being the perfect day for a fall date! Do you have any fall traditions?

Do you live near Philadelphia? If so, be sure to check out Solebury Orchards! Other options include Linvilla Orchards, Highland Orchards and Shadybrook Farm. But hurry - apple picking is typically until the end of the first week of November!


  1. Blog post looks amazing and photography is beautiful! This looks so nice and I hope you have enjoyed yourself :)

  2. One of the easiest decision I have ever made was when I accepted to get married to a man I thought was my soul mate, my lover for 2yrs. He was the most handsome and honest man I have ever encountered, he was so kind respectful to me and my entire family. He gave me the reason to spend my entire life with him. I enjoyed 3yrs of love and sweet romance as his wife before the devil came into our home, his ex-girlfriend worked voodoo on him, she made him show me the bad side of him and also caused our divorce. The most annoying part was when she tried to take my life spiritually and physically, fighting to ensure am thoroughly erased from my husband before she takes over. It was getting tensed till the extent that I couldn’t sleep both day and night because she must be there to trouble me.
    Story short, I used the only available options left which was Dr. Wakina @ {} before I lose everything including my life. Dr. Wakina was the last option because every other sources failed and his love spell worked wonders after 7days which saw the evil lady flee from us with immediate effect, the divorce case was reconciled within days as well.
    Since after the spell, I finally knew how to treat wicked and jealous people and a whole new lot of thing from Dr. Wakina. Happiness and joy has been in abundance in my family for the past 8months after the love spell. Thanks to dr. wakina’s love spell that works wonders {}.

  3. Oh what a sweet tradition to share! I went apple picking with my swim team a few years ago and it was so much fun! I still remember the delicious funnel cake I ate there :D We were at Linvilla Orchards actually! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
