Apple Picking

IMG_1019

I’m a city girl through and through, but one of my favorite things about living in Atlanta is that the country is just a short drive away. Over the weekend, my mom and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and partake in our first Fall activity. We headed up to B.J. Reece Orchards, an apple orchard where you can pick from a wide selection of the seasonal fruit. The 120-acre family owned farm and apple orchard, nestled in the mountains of North Georgia, also contains a petting zoo and country store. We filled our bags with Granny Smith (my favorite), Red Rome Beauty, and some Golden Delicious. Luckily, we didn’t see any poisonous ones ;). Before heading out, we made a quick stop at the petting zoo where I tried to bring home the cutest goat, and then to the country store for two more pecks of apples and some local honey. Cute animals, delicious fruit, and crisp mountain air- I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the arrival of Fall.
