    Question Apple Picking

    I like to take DS apple picking each year, so I'm wondering what is good in London area (don't mind driving for a bit).

    I have looked online and found a couple that look good. Apple Land Station - MEET YOU AT THE STATION looks like it only has mcintosh?

    Birtch Farms & Estate Winery | Apples, Pumpkins, Wine, Gift Baskets, Pick Your Own Apples and Pumpkins and more Thinking of going to this one since it has playground

    But wondering if anyone has anything good or bad to say about either of these or other places they have been?

    I've been to Appleland for school trips -- but usually as a family we just go to the apple farm at the top of Byron Baseline Road...nothing fancy or any bells & whistles, just lottsa apples.

    ITA with KM Apple land is awesome, Our friend “Ernie' runs it.. he so nice. our kids used to play on the 'hangar' at the front. LOTS of apples to choose from that I remember anyway. AND he takes you around on a train and shows you where the apples are that you want to pick. have fun.

    I grew up in Dorchester, so I am also impartial to Apple Land. They have many different varieties, but they are in season at different times. I think you will find that with any orchard.

    I followed the link you gave for Apple land and it says they have 14 varieties! So I think that might be your best bet!

    We have been to the one in Byron twice and I love it there. The trees are little so the kids can reach apples.

    I haven't been, but DS went to AppleLand with his daycare last year and he loved it. He still asks to go back!
