U-Pick Apple Schedules

Fall is without a doubt my favorite time of year. Changing leaves, temperatures dropping, pumpkin carving and best of all – apple picking, the perfect step into the fall season. Check out the list below for u-pick farms all within one hour of Columbus. Make sure to check out their websites, as many of them offer so much more than apple picking! Great way to spend the weekend with your family.
