Guide to Apple Orchards & Pumpkin Patches

2022 Guide to apple orchards and pumpkin patches feature image

There is nothing like Autumn in Wisconsin. The changing leaves, the crisp air, and the pumpkin spice everything. You can’t beat it. It also means apple picking at apple orchards and lots of fun at the pumpkin patch!

We are so fortunate to have so many options for both within a short car ride. That said, apple orchards are starting to open, and in a matter of weeks, we will be planning our trips to the pumpkin patch.

*It’s always a good idea to call ahead to make sure your favorite apples or pumpkins are ready for picking.
