A picture-perfect day of apple-picking, orchard strolling and shopping in a bountiful market

Get the phone ready, because you’ll want to take plenty of pictures at the Scott Farm, where the kids will love picking their own apples (especially Honey Crisps!) and peaches – and pumpkins when the weather turns toward autumn. The 571-acre property, which began its farming life in 1791, is part of the Landmark Trust USA, and was the site for many of the scenes in the movie “The Cider House Rules.” The farm specializes in heirloom fruit, including pears, plums, cherries, persimmons, apricots, grapes and blueberries. Fresh fruit can be purchased at the market, along with jams, jellies, pies, cider and cider donuts. Check the website for information on fun family activities, including Heirloom Apple Day, orchard walks and crepe nights.
