Long Island Local Apple Picking

Updated September 2021

There’s so much to be excited about this time of year, whether it’s the beautiful fall foliage, crisp air, local festivals, apple picking, hayrides and not to mention my personal favorites- spiced lattes and cashmere sweaters.

Many people have been discussing where to go apple picking this weekend, so we have complied a few names/places that are in the Five Harbors and beyond! Whether you’re looking to pick you-own apples, pick up a bag or simply get a fresh and delicious apple pie, we are ‘lucky’ to have many options!

Kick off apple picking season at Harbes Orchard Apple Festival 9/11 & 9/12
