Having trouble with ideas for good fall activities this season? Look no further–Highland Orchards in Marshallton-Thorndale has everything you need! Most importantly, they have the
best apple picking around.

Kevin Damico, senior at Downingtown West and expert apple picker, says the best part of apple picking at Highland Orchards is “how many apples there are and all the varieties you can pick. You get a really good apple picking experience here.” It is obvious that many others agree upon a walkthrough of the positive and cheerful atmosphere throughout the whole process.

The process can make for a wonderful morning or afternoon at the Orchard, from getting your token to go on the tractor that takes you to the field, to ending your journey at the pumpkin patch where you can pick as many pumpkins as you can carry. Along with the common apple types, Fuji and Granny Smith, there are also other apple varieties, like Pink Lady and Gold Rush. Whether you want a peck or a bushel, you can pay for as many bags as you would like to fill.

To complete your full morning or afternoon of fall festivities, after spending time in the fields gathering your apples and pumpkins, you can head back to the bakery for a sweet treat. The well-stocked bakery includes pastries, cookies, pies, and Highland Orchards’ famous apple cider doughnuts. On your way out, make sure you stop by the goat pen and, for only 25 cents, feed them a handful of corn! You will leave Highland Orchards with all your expectations met, and your fall activities completed.
