Apples and Goats

We took Gavin to Indian Ladder Farms last weekend to pick apples. Apple picking is a big deal around here and is a tradition for many families each fall. We went early on Saturday morning and had breakfast in the cafe. Apple cider doughnuts are amazing! We also had fresh mulled cider, pressed right there at the farm.

Afterwards, we took Gavin to meet the farm animals. We took a video of him feeding the goat- his laugh is so adorable.

We picked 1/2 bushel of apples, which I will be using to make apple sauce, apple butter, and some other treats. Here are a few pics of our apple picking adventure.

That video is so fun! And I LOVE apple cider doughnuts. There's a cider mill near us with fresh ones daily, and it takes will power to drive past!
