The Pumpkin House
New England's farms just come to life in the fall. From deep orange pumpkins and gourds of all shapes and sizes to crunchy apples and hot cider, nothing beats a trip to the orchard in the fall.

One of my favorite farms in New England is The Big Apple in Wrentham, Massachusetts. I've been going there every fall since I was a child. All of these years later, the place hasn't changed much and that's a good thing! You can still get a free apple just for visiting. You can still watch a train circle around the area where the apples are cleaned. Best of all, you can still buy all of their the fall foods that you wait patiently all year for.

If you go to The Big Apple, you MUST try their donuts. They are perfect and light. You could eat a half dozen in one sitting. If you show up at the right time, you can even see them make the donuts. Right now, they are also selling candy and caramel apples. Both are so delicious. You can also buy bags of several varieties of apples that are grown on their acres of land. Also for sale: several kinds of pies, fudge, candy, popcorn, cider (made from their own apples), cheeses, veggies, pickles and so much more! In recent years, The Big Apple also started to sell ice cream. There are many flavors to choose from including my seasonal favorite, pumpkin.

Now is also the perfect time to visit for all of your fall decorating needs. They have pumpkins and gourds of all sizes. Their pumpkin house is a sight! They also sell mums and Indian corn. Of yeah, be sure to be on the lookout for the witch on Halloween weekend!


*While there are plenty of bagged apples to buy, apple picking is over for the 2013 season. , , ,
