Crisp, chill air is replacing those humid summer mornings so that can only mean one thing: autumn is in full effect! While most people jump straight into Halloween mode, it’s important to remember that pumpkins aren’t the only fruit being harvested this season. Pennsylvania is actually one of the top apple producing states in the country. Here is a list of apple orchards near Philadelphia to get you in gear for cooler days and evenings!
Strawberry Acres
1767 Clearview Road
Coplay, PA 18037

Don’t let the name of this cozy 100-acre farm fool you, apples hang from rows of easy to reach dwarf trees. The family-owned farm is home to eleven different types of apples, including Royal Galas, Honey Crisp, and Idareds—which are ideal for pies, pastries, and other baked goods! With a marketplace vending everything from pre-picked fruit to fruit butters, Strawberry Acres also provides games, pony rides, a treasure hunt, a Noah’s Ark Animal Workshop—where kids can make their own stuffed animal on September and October Saturdays—and a life-sized carving of Johnny Appleseed. Located just 90 minutes from Philadelphia, Strawberry Acres is sure to be a fun retreat on any weekend until November!
