Apple picking makes for a quintessential family weekend getaway or day trip that brings fruitful rewards far after you've left the orchard. Here, we've put together a guide to pick-your-own apple farms on Long Island, many of which include fun fall extras like hay rides, corn mazes, and cider pressing, making these spots ideal for families.

Take advantage of the crisp fall weather and venture out to the orchards for equally crisp and delicious apples, plucked straight from the tree. Many of the local orchards listed here offer low-hanging branches ideal for your little ones to pick and fill their own bushel of autumn’s freshest fruit. While you’re there, join in fun farm activities like hayrides, farmers markets, and petting zoos.
  

Please note: Dates and availability are subject to change. We recommend calling ahead before visiting these farms.
