Apple Picking Has Started at Anderson Orchard in Pleasantview - Our Bag of Apples .52 cents /lb
Today we took some time to go out to Anderson Orchard - one of our favorite places to visit. They have great apples, the best apple cider slushies, apple cobbler and corn dogs. Today we went to pick a few apples and get some apple cider slushies for the kids.
We decided to pick only a small bag of apples since it is the beginning of the picking season and the apples will improve as the season goes on. We chose the $4.00 1/2 peck bag. We filled our bag with a variety of the apples that are now ready.
When I got home I decided to weigh or apples and see if apple picking was economical as well as a fun time for us! We picked over 7 lbs of apples and that would make our apples cost only .52 cents a lb. What a great deal and we had a great time too.
After going to the orchard, we go around the corner to Southeastway park. The park has a wonderful shaded playground and swings. The kids had a great time! There are also nice picnic areas, grills for cooking out and pavilions at the park. There are also a lot of paths for walking.
You can reach Anderson Orchard easily from I-74, for directions go here.
