One of our absolute favorite family activities in the fall is apple picking. We would go every Friday if it wouldn't mean our house would be over flowing with apples. ;-) We've been to a few apple orchards are Columbus and our favorite, by far, is Cherry Hawk Farm located in Marysville.
This apple orchard is different than anything I've found in Columbus, it's quiet. I was amazed. There aren't bounce houses or ponies or anything fancy - just simple quiet apple picking with my family. They have a large area of green space that you can lay a blanket down and have a picnic. I, for one, appreciate a nice quiet space to spend time with my family.
Okay, okay, the space is great - you get that but are the apples good? Yes! They are delicious. We went in the beginning of September (maybe late August) and they lasted three weeks. We always get a basket full so we have a lot and couldn't eat them all but we ate most and then made some fun apple pies, and did some fun crafts with apples with the rest of them.
