Apple Works: A Haven for Harvest Fun

Posted by: Shelby Morse on September 1, 2023

Nestled amidst the picturesque countryside of Trafalgar lies Apple Works, a captivating orchard that comes alive with the arrival of harvest season. As the leaves turn golden and the air grows crisp, this beloved destination becomes a wonderland of fall fun. 

At Apple Works, you can wander through rows of apple trees, play on a hay bale mountain, navigate the corn maze, choose your own pumpkin from the patch and, ultimately, make unforgettable fall memories.

Beyond the fall attractions and delicious apples, you can also shop for locally-made treasures in the vintage barn. From charming crafts to unique decor, the artisan market offers one-of-a-kind items that will add a touch of fall to your home.

For little ones, a visit to Apple Works is an adventure. The petting zoo awaits, where gentle animals welcome their new visitors. Children can frolic in the pumpkin patch, ride a pony or a train and explore the fall-themed playground.

When hunger strikes, food trucks will be there ready to serve both classic eats and seasonal favorites like Apple Works' own apple cider slushies. Inside the barn, you'll find more treats like homemade ice cream, apple pie, and fresh produce.

Apple Works is not merely an orchard; it's a fall experience that captures the essence of the season. So gather your loved ones and create cherished memories at this autumn wonderland.
