The apple harvest has commenced! Get your buckets ready—farmers are gradually opening up their apple orchards for picking. Due to our absurdly hot summer, all of the crops are ripening earlier than usual. There are plenty of apple-picking orchards encircling Greater St. Louis, including:
Eckert’s Farm– Belleville, IL, Millstadt, IL, and Grafton, IL
Centennial Farms– Augusta, MO
Mills Apple Farm– Marine, IL
Thierbach Orchards & Berry Farm– Marthasville, MO
Each farm will begin harvesting their precious apples at different times, so if you want to go on a picking spree just make sure to confirm with the farm that the orchards are ready for you. Happy picking!
