Apple Picking Fun!

Do you like apples? Looking for a fun and interactive outing with your family? Now that the apple harvest season has arrived, think about taking a field trip with your family to pick some apples.

While there are many good apple orchards in the area, a drive out to the Jonamac Orchard in Malta, IL will not disappoint you! You can pick your own apples, visit the country store, take some time out for cider and donuts, and even travel through a historic corn maze!

Before your trip to the orchard we have some excellent titles at the library to help you prepare.

Apple Harvest by Calvin Harris and Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington will set the tone and include some recipes to gather apples for when you go.

If you would like to learn more about apples and enjoy some apple-themed game links with your children, take a trip to Apple Fun.

Happy Apple Picking Time!
