Apple Orchard, Pie Kitchen & Country Store

On Sunday I had a wonderful time apple picking with my oldest daughter. She came home from college do to some laundry and enjoyed some home cooked meals (you know how college kids are).
We went to nearby Breeden’s Orchard in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. The orchard offers apples and fresh cider from September to October and peaches from July to August. It also has a cute country store with yummy jams, jellies, juices, and even knitted scarves and hats.

Upon arrival, the owner handed us a basket with some instructions, such as “… this row has the tart apples; this row has the smaller apples, only pick apples from the tree not off the ground, etc.” We had the best time picking, eating, and enjoying the fresh air and nature. We ended up with six pounds of apples in our basket and probably two pounds worth of apples in our stomachs.

The apples were delicious and I can’t wait to make an apple pie or apple strudel.

Sometimes it’s nice to get away from computers and smartphones and just enjoy the simple things in life. Picking apples is relaxing and fun. If you haven’t done it yet, find a farm or an orchard and pick some fruit straight from a tree.

It was a good day!
