Last year, we began the tradition of apple picking as part of our seasonal family fun. It’s a small, but effective way to take time out of our busy lives and spend it together outside of the house. Not to mention that it creates the perfect healthy snack for those long hours during the week.
Living in the middle of the city, one would think that an apple orchard would be hard to come by. But it’s my pleasure to report that just thirty minutes north, in Glen Arm, is Weber’s Peachberry Farm with its bakery and goods store about ten minutes away. If you aren’t new to my postings, then you may be familiar with the name as we frequent the farm pretty often during harvest season. It’s the perfect place for a family outing but if you have furry friends, they will have to stay at home.
Weber’s really is a one stop shop for all things tasty where everyone can find their favorite seasonal treats. This time of year, you can get delicious apple pies, oatmeal raisin cookies, and apple cider donuts. And the one thing that takes my father down memory lane is their homemade applesauce which he says reminds him of the applesauce his Grandma Grace used to make for him when he was a child.
Yesterday was the first day of fall, and here in Baltimore the temperature has been steadily dropping. I’m so excited for all the other activities this autumnal season will bring. So stay tuned and don’t forget that with this cooler weather you can never have too much tea or champagne!
