Apple Picking is On. Here’s Where to Go.

A lot of folks are wondering if New York’s annual traditional of picking apples in bucolic orchards among the fiery fall leaves and baked cider donuts is a safe activity for 2020. EscapeMaker founder & CEO Caylin Sanders joined Heritage Radio Network to answer that question. YES!

Social distance!) are taken, apple picking is officially on for this season.
