The fall season is among us, and what better way to embrace the fall season than by going apple picking. There are many farms in Ontario where you can pick your choice of fresh fruits and vegetables with the family.

If you’re looking for a break from Toronto’s hustle and bustle, here are a few great spots where you and your family can go apple picking.
Applewood Farm Winery
Located in Stouffville, Applewood Farm has become a popular destination for picking fresh apples. Not only that but they also offer different types of jam you can enjoy during breakfast. You can sample wine from their tasting bar, as all the wine is made from the fruits from the farm.

There are lots of fruits and vegetables to choose from, as they grow over 165 acres worth of fruits and vegetables. The range of fresh produce offerings ranges from strawberries to pumpkins, apples, peaches, pears and corn. They also specialize in fruit wines, made from the fruits of the farm.
