Guide to Apple Orchards & Pumpkin Patches


There is nothing like Autumn in Wisconsin. The changing leaves, the crisp air, and the pumpkin spice everything. You can’t beat it. It also means apple picking at apple orchards and lots of fun at the pumpkin patch!

We are so fortunate to have so many options for both within a short car ride. That said, apple orchards are starting to open with their early apples and in a matter of weeks, we will be planning our trips to the pumpkin patch.

Let us know in the comments which are your favorite!!

*It’s always a good idea to call ahead to make sure your favorite apples or pumpkins are ready for picking.
