Where to Pick Apples in New York State

Autumn (apple season!) in New York State is truly magnificent. The air turns crisp, the leaves catch fire with color, the smells of cinnamon float through the air, and the orchards are brimming with juicy New York apples. There are so many delicious and gorgeous orchards ready for U-Pick adventures all along the Hudson River. We’ve listed some of our favorites below.

If you’re super busy this time of year (who isn’t?!), before you start plotting your own adventure, check out one of the many Apple & Pumpkin Picking Tours with EscapeMaker this fall. Apple picking getaways packaged up for you and your crew! From September 8 – October 28, spend beautiful weekend days visiting quaint Hudson Valley towns, visiting farms, and picking apples to your heart’s content. Choose from our direct bus tours from Bryant Park, or our hop on / hop off looper shuttles, which start with a train ride on Metro-North Railroad.
