An Apple Orchard for Impossibly Fresh Treats
An even more personal fall tradition is cooking treats at home. Whether you picked up the hobby over the last year, or you’re a seasoned home cook with plenty of experience and treasured family recipes stashed somewhere safe, there’s no question: you cannot go wrong with a hot apple pie (or cider, or candy apples, or apple donuts, or… you get the idea). You’re gonna need a supply of crisp, fresh apples to do that, though – and only 30 minutes away is Allman Orchards.
