Let's go apple picking at a place where we can also choose our Halloween pumpkins at the same time!

"Sponsel's Minnesota Harvest" is the place where I've gone apple picking in the Fall for years and years! I've introduced countless friends from home and other countries to this super fun tradition! (I was going to say it's an upper Midwest tradition, but I've also gone apple picking in the Washington, DC /Northern Virginia area, as well ...)

Anyway, at this place, they not only have apple orchards, they also have pony rides, a barnyard zoo where kids can pet the animals through the fence, a free corn maze, a crazy apple launcher game, food and, of course, pumpkins for sale! So you get a "twofer" : fresh-picked apples and a chance to pick out your Halloween pumpkin at the same time!

So, bring the kids and picnic, cuz in past years, we've been able to sit at the edge of the apple orchard and eat our lunch! They also have things like hot dogs and brats and delicious donuts and other pastries for sale as well!
