Yesterday the kiddies and I took off after school to a local farm to pick our own apples. We especially love this particular farm because they also have their very own cider mill...and man is the cider delicious!!
The kids had a blast walking up and down through the orchard, trying to find the perfect apples. Farnsworth Farms is really a great place. The people there are so kind and helpful, helping to make it a great experience for everyone.
The kids had so much fun filling up their bags with Golden Delicious apples, even Avrie got in on the action ;)
The little playground they had behind the peach trees didn't hurt either :)
As I mentioned, Farnsworth Farms makes their very own cider on sight, and it the best cider I have ever had. We picked up a gallon while we were there and on the way home I thought to myself...if anything could make this cider eve better, its GOT to be ice cream :)
So after dinner we concocted our very own Fresh Apple Cider Floats!
I kid you not, these were amazing!! The cider adds a little bit of tartness that mixes with the sweetness of the vanilla ice cream perfectly. I threw in some cinnamon sticks to add just a touch of spice and we all gobbled them down. A perfect way to end our lovely fall, fruit-picking day :)
If you are a Utah local and are looking for a fun place to take your kids to pick some fruit, Farnsworth Farms is located at 11228 S 700 E in Sandy, UT. This is not a sponsored post by any means, we have just had a great time every year that we go there and I LOVE to support local businesses that are out there doing good things :) While you're there, make sure you pick up some cider...you won't regret it!!
