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!
