It’s that time of year again; time to pick apples and Asian pears at the Apple Harvest Celebration going on now at Apple Annie’s Orchard in Willcox, AZ.
During the weekends of Aug. 27-28, Sept 3-5 and Sept. 10-11 you can start the day with a pancake and hot apple topping or cider syrup breakfast from seven-thirty to ten-thirty before catching the free wagon ride out to the orchard to hand-pick apples fresh off the tree. Apple-smoked burgers are on sale from eleven-thirty to four o’clock with the orchard remaining open until five-thirty.
In addition to the events listed above, the weekend of Sept 17 and 18 crafters will be on the grounds selling their handmade wares from eight to four and there will be an apple pie baking contest at two o’clock. Got a great pie recipe? Bring it and your pie by one o’clock to enter.
