hi!
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!

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