Going apple picking, a classic fall activity in Central Ohio, is a sure sign of the changing seasons! Even if you live in the city of Columbus, a u-pick apple farm is less than an hour away!
5 Places to Pick Apples in Columbus and Central Ohio:
Our family loves to pick apples. We have traditionally picked our apples at Lynd Fruit Farm since we moved here in 2008, but we have recently branched out (no pun intended) to try some other local apple farms! Though we haven’t tried every one of these, I wanted to include as many as I could find in the Central Ohio area!
