organic or low-spray apple picking?

i'm trying to take the kiddos apple picking tomorrow. i know it's hard to grow apples around her organically--or at least hard to grow them *well*. but apples are of the worst in terms of pesticides... so i'd really like to hit up one of the low-spray orchards.

anyone ever been to any of these? if so, can you speak on their apple quality and what the orchard is like? other suggestions? looking to stay within 2 hours of nyc. thanks!

  1. or this one?

    also, Stone Ridge farm sounds great, but they say their apples are already picked over...

    1. mcenroe farms is organic, not sure if they have apples.
