Happy Fall! It's time to bust out the cozy sweaters, bake everything with cinnamon and start checking things off your fall bucket lists! One of the things that should be at the top of that list is, Apple Picking! As far as Fall family activities go, apple picking is my favorite!
I have found http://www.pickyourown.org/UT.htm to be a great resource when it comes to PYO (pick your own) farms throughout Utah. Fall is generally when the growing season is winding down so it's important to call the farms and see what is available for PYO.
Knowing that apple picking was at the top of my Fall bucket list I searched high and low for an orchard in Utah Valley and I found just the cutest little family run farm!
Pleasant Grove Guernseys, in Pleasant Grove, is one of the last family run farms in the area. This small family farm has a lovely orchard offering Red Delicious, Jonathan and Roman Beauty apples!
They also grow corn and a variety of other produce available for PYO. The orchard is located behind an adorable yellow farm house and there is even a play set for the kids to play on!
They offer ample parking in the back behind the house but since this is a small farm they ask you call before you come, (801) 787-2130.
This charming little farm also boasts a beautiful view of Pleasant Grove's G on G mountain and Utah Valley! They are an all organic farm and don't use any pesticides or chemicals on their produce!
Which makes me feel comfortable letting my little ones enjoy the fruits of their labor, after the apples have been weighed and paid for of course!
Apples are $1.00 per pound but the family fun to be had is priceless!
Please call before you go!

Tiffany, what a nice, unexpected complement to our home and orchard. I was wondering why we had so many visitors in the last few days, and after reading your write up, now I know why! We love our home in Pleasant Grove and the lifestyle we have been able to enjoy with our kids and grandkids. We feel truly blessed and are glad to share a part of our bit of heaven on earth with others.
