South East Wisconsin Apple Picking

This is a sponsored post.

School is starting soon, which is always the first sign that Fall is around the corner. To our family that means it is apple picking time and fresh apple cider and flannel and crisp, cool nights. How about you?

Here is a round up of verified farms that have u-pick (or you-pick) apples. Orchards open their you pick (u-pick or PYO) all at different times. Please check the website link and verify that there are still apples left to be picked, and/or the season is open, before you drive all the way there and learn that there are none left! Go out and make some fabulous memories with the ones you love! We hope you enjoy our South East Wisconsin Apple Picking Guide.

Peck and Bushel Fruit Company!

P&B 2016

Peck & Bushel Fruit Company, Southeastern Wisconsin’s largest certified organic apple orchard is looking forward to another beautiful apple crop this season. The early apple varieties will be available pre-picked or for Pick Your Own beginning in late August. They are open weekends from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm through mid-October. 

For 2017 Peck & Bushel is debuting two new organic apple varieties, bringing them to a total of 20 varieties throughout the season.  They are also opening Peck & Bushel Baking Company this year! Apple cider doughnuts, and more, will be served in their retail barn.

The orchard is located in southeastern Wisconsin, about 30 miles northwest of Milwaukee. The address is 5454 County Road Q, Colgate, Wisconsin.  The orchard is a great place to spend time with family and friends, enjoy splendid grounds with farm country vistas and take home some healthy Wisconsin-grown apples.

Lake Country Family Fun so enjoyed our apple picking experience in fall 2016 at Peck and Bushel. See our fun here.
