Nothing beats fresh air and delicious apples

Lots of activities we usually engage in are simply not possible in the age of COVID-19, but one Maine traditon that we love every fall is still happening, and that is apple picking.

Apple picking is the perfect outdoor experience for the whole family, there is plenty of room at an apple orchard to socially distance from everyone, and plenty of trees to everyone to enjoy. The rules are a little different this year, masks are required of course, and people will be asked to not eat apples while they are outside picking.

Maine has several orchards in each county, so there are plenty of options for you to choose from. Evertything you need to know about the changes at orchards due to the pandemic, and maps to each location, can be found at
