“Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple” -J.K. Rowling
The weather was so beautiful yesterday that we decided to hop in the car and head up to Sky Top Orchard in Flat Rock, NC. Only a two hour ride from Columbia, Sky Top is the perfect destination for a day trip. In addition to acres of varietal apple trees, the orchard features a market of specialty apple products, fresh cider and delicious goodies, including hot apple cider donuts. There is a playground and tables outside where we were able to have a picnic lunch before we started picking.
Eloise was proud to help select the ripe fruit and place in our basket, and we are planning to make some apple crisp together this week. Make sure to add this fun, family activity to your fall list!
