Autumn isn’t complete without enjoying a seasonal food or beverage. From apple pie to pumpkin-spiced everything, fall is the perfect time for warm drinks and tasty seasonal desserts. But fall is more than delicious food, it’s also a wonderful time of year to be outside enjoying the beautiful weather. There is nothing quite like a cool, crisp fall morning!
That said, what better way to celebrate the new season than with a trip to a local apple orchard or pumpkin farm?
