Two of our favorite fall traditions...
Apple Picking, It’s finally time!
Question is, is there a right way to pick an apple? As it turns out there is a right way to pick an apple, you should “Twist to the left, never pull off branches and leaves.”
It was the perfect fall afternoon, right after a rainstorm. The sky was blue with those fluffy white clouds! What could be more fun than apple picking and a fall picnic with the LMP girls… we just love that this is becoming an annual thing for us. We love anytime we can spend with this fabulous trio.
I knew just the spot to take the girls this year. Breeze Hill Farms, if you have not been, it is a must go to this fall!
Nestled into over 72 acres of sprawling apple orchards on the North Fork of Long Island, rests an exquisitely constructed farmhouse and charming farmstand.
One visit to Breeze Hill Farm & Preserve and you will quickly realize why it’s one of Long Island’s local gems and most treasured destinations. The apples are seriously the best I have had! Make sure to say hi to Ro …she makes you feel right at home and is just the sweetest!
The first stop, once we got to this farm, had to be to say hi to the animals. Goats, llamas, horses and more…
We were warned that the Llama spits when it got excited but Natalie and I still were anxious to go say hi, a little spitting did not spoil this moment from being the highlight of the day for me. I have to say this blue-eyed goat stole my heart.
Next on the agenda had to be apple picking, so many types to choose from. These orchids are just stunning.
Apple picking sure does work up an appetite! I was so glad I decided to stop off at Sydney’s gourmet deli in WHB on my way and picked up an assortment of sandwiches for us that would go along with the hot apple cider and apple donuts made right at the farmstand, they were still warm. The perfect fall picnic.
After some quick shopping at the farmstand, we were off….thanks Ro for making us feel so welcomed and for all your goodies.
On to our next fall favorite...
