Apple Pickin’ in Indy

Fall means leaves changing color, pumpkin carving, flannel wearing, and taking a trip to the apple orchard. Indianapolis has so many wonderful orchards surrounding the city. I wanted to share our experience at our favorite, Apple Works.

Collin and I have been going to Apple Works since we started dating 8 years ago. Each year they add something and it seems to be busier, which is why I might suggest going during the week if you can. So what can you do at Apple Works? Here is a list for you:

  • Sample apples and find your favorite to take home.
  • Enjoy an apple cider slushy.
  • Listen to live music.
  • Visit the petting zoo.
  • If you have kids, there is a huge play area for them.
  • Eat a delicious apple dumpling (with ice cream if you want).
  • Have your face painted.
  • Take a hay ride if you have to park in the back lot.
  • Purchase all of the apple goodies you can think of including apple butter, apple bread, apple pie, and more. Plus all of it is homemade.
  • Try the apple butter with a fried biscuit.

Apple Works is so family friendly. It’s definitely a great way to spend an afternoon enjoying our beautiful fall Indiana weather.

I am sure there are many more, however these are orchards that I am familiar with or have actually visited. We had our engagement photos taken at Anderson Orchard in 2015 and they turned out beautifully.

I hope this will help you plan your own trip to one of Indy’s orchards.
