Our Visit to the Farms
Oh man, I can’t wait to go back! I’m already trying to convince the hubster to go back again next weekend. We arrived early afternoon at the farm to meet our friends for apple picking. There is a tractor that takes you from the main site to the farms for picking. An adventure is an understatement.
You wouldn’t believe the rows of apples that awaits once you get off the tractor. I have to be honest. I didn’t even know there were such a variety of apples. Imagine the different kinds of red apples alone. Sheesh! It’s way more fun just tasting them all! Dominic loved it. I even snuck him a few apples to suck on.
Apple picking lasted about two hours before we started to feel exhausted. We had bags on bags of apples that showed just how much fun we had picking apples. It was time to go back to the main site.
Becker’s Brewery was our next stop to regroup and rest for a bit. A live band played in the background while us adults sipped on brews and wine. The kids were able to enjoy ice cream in the meantime. Before we left, Dominic and I took a few pictures on this cool wagon near the vineyards.
This turned out to be surprisingly enjoyable for the both of us. I was a bit hesitant to go out of my comfort zone at first. My expectations have been more than surpassed. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive. It’s more than enough activities to make it a family fun day. Dominic had a blast. He slept all the way home. I absolutely loved their brews! What more can a mom ask for?!
