Apple picking season is here (finally)! It’s time to grab your friends and family and spend the day creating Fall memories. Whether it’s your first time or your family’s annual tradition, there are plenty of options around the Kansas City metro area.
1. Always call the farm or visit their website or FaceBook page to make sure there are apples left to pick! We’ve learned this lesson the hard way. 🙂
2. It can get hot out there. Bring water and snacks.
3. Bring your camera to capture the fun!
