Apples, Apples and More Apples!

26 Sep, 2014

Autumn has always been the popular season for apples: Apple pie, apple crisp, apple cider, apple dumplings, caramel apples, baked apples… Who’s hungry?

If in Green Lake, Wisconsin, this fall, we encourage you to make a short drive over to Pineapple Hill Orchard between Princeton and Green Lake. The orchard has an abundance of apple choices and beautiful grounds of full gardens and stunning rock walls. While it is not a “pick-your-own” orchard, there are large bags of apples ready to go and ready to be eaten. Yum!

Pineapple Hill Orchard is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends until November 1. Follow Highway 23 W to County Road A, and then turn right on Old Princeton Road W. After 4 miles, you’ll have arrived at your destination!
