All Things Apple

The CT Ambassadors are on the hunt for the best apple picking spots in the state. Here's a list from the fanatic foodies at

Connecticut has a number of orchards and farms stores all over the state, which, come fall, make apples the name of their game. Whether you’re looking for apple cider donuts or apple fritters to munch on, an apple pie to pass off as your own, or an orchard to enjoy a day of pick-your-own with family and friends, Connecticut has it all. Here are five places across the state that cover all the bases:

Rogers Orchards, Southington

This 8th generation family run farm (see some of their apple crop above!) is located on ninety acres of land in Southington and grows over twenty varieties of apples during the season. Rogers offers pick-your-own on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and their farm store is stocked full of apples sold by the bushel, apple cider, donuts, pies and their own labels of jams and jellies.
