It’s apple orchard season!
Fall is just around the corner – a fact welcomed by some, and mourned by others who don’t want summer to end.
But regardless of your feelings on the change of season, the thought of walking through sunny orchards to pick ripe, juicy apples and smell freshly fried apple-cider doughnuts should bring a smile to everyone’s face.
McHenry County is home to some of the best you-pick apple orchards in the state, with every variety you can imagine, and probably more than a few you never heard of. And with all sorts of family-friendly activities, a visit to a McHenry County orchard is so much more than picking apples.
