It’s time to sink your teeth into crisp fall apples!
Whether you stay strictly local or venture a bit further out, romping around the orchard is a perfect way to spend an autumn afternoon. Here are 3 spots within driving distance:
Stones Apple Barn This QC tradition is open 7 days/week after Labor Day. Beautiful chickens strut around a fenced enclosure, while donkeys, goats and other animals munch on your discarded apple cores nearby. Super fun!
Wilson’s Orchard An hour from the QC, just north of Iowa City, you’ll find rolling acres of beautifully maintained grounds planted with hundreds of apple trees. Load up the family for a day of fun!
Tanners Orchard U-Pick in the orchard and family fun in the Back 40 Fun Acres will open Sept. 1. Located in Speer, IL.
