In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

An Expert’s Guide To Apple Picking

File under: "Quintessential Fall Activities"

Picture yourself apple picking at a cute little orchard on the outskirts of Cincinnati, cider in hand. It’s an awesome experience everyone should try at least once. But wait, do you actually know what to look for in an apple?

That’s where we come in. We stopped by Hidden Valley Fruit Farm in Lebanon to have an expert walk us through the orchard and give us all the tips and tricks to finding the absolute perfect apple.

IMPORTANT: As mentioned in the video, be sure to call the orchard before you go to see what’s ripe so you have a game plan. Also, hurry up! With all the rain this year, apples came in much earlier than expected so the season is winding down.
