Our first stop was this orchard, which drew us in with its claim of 70 heirloom variety apples and a 147-year old working cider press.
Each tree was neatly labeled with its variety name. Stayman Winesaps are my favorite, so I was thrilled that they had them. Stayman Winesaps are great for pie, applesauce, and cider.
Isn't this a great name for an apple?
Then we moved on to another orchard with commanding views of the rolling hills of Vermont in the distance.
This orchard also boasted a fabulous farmstand with: pumpkins, squash, Indian corn, gourds, and more.
We had a delicious lunch at L.A. Burdick, a french-style bistro and one of my favorite restaurants.
A stop at an antique store on the way home, and the day was complete! Well...that and the pie!
