Our Picks for U-Pick Apple Orchards to Visit This Fall
The cooler days bring crisp and juicy apples to pack in lunchboxes or to make yummy fall goodies, like pies and applesauce. Grab your little ones and head out to pick buckets full of sweet or tart apples at one of these family-friendly U-pick apple farms just a stone’s throw from Portland. Click through our album to see all six farms.
Mountain View Orchards
Ruthie and Lyle have operated their family orchard together for many years. The farm offers a wide array of U-Pick apple varieties, delicious apple pie, hiking, picnicking and free hayrides and visits with animals on the weekends. Join in the reverie of all things apple at their Harvest Fest October 17-19 where they will serve over 15 kinds of applesauce and desserts, while doling out free samples. Don’t miss Ruthie’s applesauce cinnamon rolls and cute farm critters, including Jack the horse, Carlos the steer and two Shetland lambs.
