2021 Guide to Apple Orchards & Pumpkin Patches

1
GUIDE TO APPLE ORCHARDS AND PUMPKIN PATCHES presented by Green Bay Area Mom and Bellin Health; listing of apple orchards and pumpkin patches in the green bay and appleton areas

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, and in a matter of weeks, we will be planning our trips to the pumpkin patch.

Thank you to Bellin Health, our Food Sponsor from Mama’s Night, for being the presenting sponsor of this guide!

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