An Apple Picking Guide To Stowe
Where to pick the area’s best apples
While Stowe, Vermont, is a beloved and popular destination year round, there’s something about fall that makes it feel extra special. The leaves are turning a brilliant kaleidoscope of gold, orange, and red, and the slight chill in the air calls for bundling up in cozy layers. Even food wise, there’s something special to look forward to. Apple picking is unique to the season and the area, as Vermont is renown for exceptional Honey Crisp, Cortland, and Macintosh apples. Owned by Greg Burtt, Burtt’s Apple Orchard is a six-acre farm which boasts over 35 apple varieties, with branches trimmed at height for easy picking. In addition to a dozen varieties you can choose from, Dolly Gray Orchard has plenty of home made ways (think cider, donuts, and jelly) to satisfy your apple cravings. Established in 1979 along the scenic Worcester Mountain Range, Hunger Mountain Orchard offers up both scenic views and a bounty of pre-picked apples, in case you’re short on time and prefer to grab and go.
