Today Wilma, Gus, My Mom and I Adventured to Brookfield Orchards in Brookfield, Massachusetts. Brookfield Orchards has been family owned since 1918. As expected there is a large orchard for apple picking. Brookfield Orchards also has a playground for children, a Country Store with baked good, and offer hay rides.
We had a warm Adventure to Brookfield Orchards. Although my ideal day for apple picking is not a hot one, today was the day I had it planned, so we did not let a warmer day stop us. I was quite happy to hear about this new dog friendly orchard. Upon arrival I was shocked and disappointed to find it incredibly crowded, endless cars parked in various lots. I did not expect an orchard in a quiet, country town to be such a tourist destination, however we had arrived so we continued on our Adventure. We started with apple picking which of course was our main plan for the adventure. I believe there were three different available apples, but although I love apple picking annually I am not particular about types. We walked through the orchard, picking apples and taking photographs. I was a little bit of a slacker on the apple picking (thanks Mom), as we were sharing the same bag. There were endless apples and rows of trees, and of course people everywhere. We just about filled our bag, before we decided to finish our apple picking.
After apple picking I walked around with the pups while Mom visited the Country Store. We found some nice shade to wait and rest. Throughout our adventure both Wilma and Gus enjoyed endless rolls, grass chewing, and Wilma made sure to keep an eye on her Grandma’s every move! The pups were quite warm so I did not put too much energy into posing. It was fun watching Gus check out the apples, even occasionally picking one up in his mouth, maybe a ball? (haha). Although definitely too much of a hectic scene for Wilma and I we still enjoyed trotting through the orchard and completing our traditional annual apple picking adventure. Off to make apple crisp! So glad we could check out Brookfield Orchards today (Rating: 4).
