It’s that time of year already, kids are in school, the hot days are fewer, and apples are ready to be picked. Here are a few places you can go to pick-your-own apples.

Hidden Hollow Orchard
right here in Louisville is also a good place to visit.  Check their
website for updates – they are open again for 2017 (estimated 8/26).

Joe Hubers Farm in Starlight, IN is a great place to pick some apples.

Huber’s Orchard & Winery has a large variety of apples for picking!

Boyd Orchards is just a short drive down I-64 in Versailles.  They have apple picking and all sorts of fun events and festivals for the fall.  They also offer fun for the whole family. 
(They harvest their own apples, not a u-pick site…………yet) but Mulberry Orchard in Shelby County is a great place to visit with families! See review here.

Here’s another great post from Oldham Family Fun that has even more ideas & details including some farm markets to get local apples!

And what to do with all these apples? Turn them into an apple crisp, apple butter, apple pie, applesauce, dry the apples, make caramel apples and then decorate them with dried fruit and candy to make them look like jack-o-lanterns. One of my favorite recipe sites is and they have a great recipe for slow cooker apple butter that can also be frozen to be used later. Hidden Hollow Orchard website also has several apple recipes. So many options you may want to try out both orchards so you can enjoy the apple goodies.
