There are not many autumn activites that compare to reaching up into an apple tree, pulling down a choice Mac and biting into it as the breeze of Indian Summer rustles the leaves around you.
New Hampshire offers quite a few orchards where you can pick your own apples.
Our adventurous team piled into two vehicles with friends and family and headed for the Surowiec Farm in Sanbornton for our adventure, but you can pick the orchard of your choice from our list below.
Surowiec Farm is located on the Perly Hill Road in Sanbornton, just off exit 22. Bear east and watch for Perly Hill road on your right.
Its a great family activity and after the picking you can join together in the kitchen to make pies, apple crisp, apple sauce, whatever you have a hankering for.
But we should warn you . . . watch our for grandma, she may be tempted to try climbing for the best ones.
Surowiec also has blueberries and a nice selection of other products.
