Today Shadow, Wilma, My Mom, and I Adventured to Doe Orchards in Harvard, Massachusetts. Doe Orchards is a family owned business encompassing approximately twenty five acres of apple orchards, 10 acres of Christmas trees, and two acres of berries. As expected Doe Orchard is popular for fruit picking. There is also a small farm stand where you can purchase fresh fruit.
We had a fun Adventure to Doe Orchards. I had been thinking about apple picking for some time, and we finally fit it in to our schedule. This was our first visit to Doe Orchards, and as you might expect we were thrilled to find a local dog friendly apple orchard. We began at the stand getting the information, and choosing our apple bag(s). There was a map of the apple trees, and kind people to answer our questions.
After gathering our necessary information we headed off into the orchard to pick some apples. I was excited to participate in this Fall New England past time. I am far from an expert on apples, but was excited about the process, and anticipation of some apple filled baked goods. We weaved in and out of the trees, simple, but scenic. The trees were marked by color, which were then labeled on stands throughout. Definitely a very organized and clearly marked farm. It appeared some of the varieties were well picked, but I was quite pleased with the choices, the company, and the experience. There were few other visitors on this grey Monday evening.
The dogs appeared quite pleased to have a weekend evening out on the town. Shadow enjoyed some rests in the grass, while Wilma watched our every move. My Mom and I chatted, and took some time wandering before we filled our bag(s). So glad we discovered the wonderful Doe Orchards. And just to add for those local dog followers, dogs are not permitted during their berry picking, but thankfully are welcome during apple picking (Rating: 4).
