Apple Picking out East
Can one get sick from eating too many apples?
We are about to find out in my house! We basically raided the inventory off the trees at Lewin Apple Orchard in Calverton yesterday.
We took 25a instead of the Long Island Expressway to enjoy a more scenic drive. Some traffic caught us about 5 miles out and we mistakenly parked at Lewin Farms on Sound Avenue first; this is where the farm stand, corn maze, flowers and small pumpkin patch are located. We headed a few miles further to reach the Orchard on Fresh Pond Road. It was crowded parking along the grass on both sides of the road so unless you visit early expect to walk for several minutes. This is important as you may be leaving with a heavy purchase!
We purchased a large basket and headed out to find some delicious apples. You will find Granny Smith, Fuji, Gala and several other types on the trees.
From Sofia, 7: So we went to the apple picking farm and we found green apples. We had fun because me and Daddy and Brandon were together and we were trying to find red ones and it was so hard. We looked everywhere and finally found big red ones. We ate them on the way home.
From Brandon, 10: When we finished picking apples we went to the ice cream truck and got all kinds of ices and ice cream. I got a fudge bar
From Mia, 2: Me got Bratz ice cream bar!
The kids had fun twisting and pulling their apples off the trees and we overfilled our basket. We’ve already had homemade apple crisp that Brandon made with his mama.
From Alana, 5:I think people should go to the apple farm because apples are healthy!
