Pumpkins and More At Local NYC Area Farms This Fall

-

Pumpkins

This is a beautiful time of year. With the leaves changing from green to red, yellow, and orange, the weather becoming cooler, and the many pumpkins, apples, and other fruits and vegetables available and in season, fall is a great time to hit the road and experience the best of New York and New Jersey farms. There are many locations to choose from, but the following may just be the best of the bunch.

New York

Stuart’s Fruit Farm in Westchester County promotes the fact that visitors can pick their pumpkins of choice directly from their vines. The best pumpkin picking experiences require a little labor, especially if squash plant lovers want the freshest options available. Visitors can also pick up to fourteen different types of apples from their trees this month, so all those interested in pumpkin and apple picking one hour away from New York City should definitely plan to visit this popular farm.

Granite Springs NY, 10527

Dykeman Farm is another attractive option for those who love pumpkins and other local and popular fall staples in the NYC metropolitan area. Crops such as sweet corn, apples, basil, parsley, and various types of gourds and squash (other than pumpkins) are some of the many fruits and vegetables available at this Dutchess County agricultural destination, which was first established in 1927. The farm has been in the same location since 1946, and has a good reputation with the locals.

New Jersey

Secor Farms in Mahwah is the closest farm to New York City, so visitors can get to this Bergen County gem easily, before the worst of the winter season hits. Hayrides are available during the week, so people can enjoy these scenic tours of the farm with fewer crowds on weekdays.

Alstede Farms is nestled in the town of Chester in Morris County, which is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of New York City to make a day of it to search for pumpkins, apples, and a variety of other fruits and vegetables on site. Sunflowers are also available at the farm, so those visiting the 600-acre property this fall should make sure to pick up a few before the season ends. Details about Alstede’s weekend events are available on their website.

Golden Gate Park, San Francisco

-

Oh, how I love San Francisco! Recently I went to an amazing park called Golden Gate Park. The playground is seriously beautiful! As soon as I saw it, I wanted to go down the slide with all of the five year olds. Is that weird? I mean just look at it!

I haven’t even gotten to the best part:

I don’t know why I’ve never seen these in other parks! You see how all of those kids have cardboard, that is key to not RIPPING YOUR PANTS!  These little five year olds outsmarted us, I did have a hole afterwards…  I won’t tell you where…

Right next to this fabulous playground, there is a vintage carousal.

Seriously, this park has everything! The day was complete with our picnic under the sun. This is definitely something different, free, and family friendly to do in San Francisco.

Creeks and Sandwiches in Oregon

-

A few weeks ago, a few friends and I decided to bike to Troutdale, Oregon, which is about 12 miles from my house in Portland. After an hour or so of biking, we reached the creek and spent the whole afternoon floating on the river, laying out in the sun, and fighting the fairly strong currents of the river. Though I brought some gatorade, a peanut butter sandwich, and rice crackers, I was famished, and therefore pretty cranky. Thankfully, I got an Italian soda, some amazing Oregon strawberry ice cream (Tillamook is slowly becoming one of my favorite ice cream brands), and a hot dog, and my crankiness was pushed back for about an hour. And then it struck again: it was time for dinner.

While biking back, we stopped at Shirley’s Tippy Canoe and I hesitantly got myself a Reuben sandwich. Now, I do not often get a Reuben outside of the New York metropolitan area because I have been disappointed too many times with Midwestern and Southern attempts at the Reuben. I am happy to say that I was beyond satisfied, and perhaps that was also because I was aggressively hungry, but I know what I tasted and it was good. It even reminded me a bit of home.

I didn’t have the energy to bike all the way back, so we waited fifteen minutes and took a bus directly into our neighborhood. It was hard to not be thankful for all the resources Portland has; with awesome food, an amazing transportation system, and so much to do… plus, the whole region is pretty beautiful. All that to say it’s not hard to have a perfect day in Portland.

Paddle Boating On Bear Mountain

-

unnamed (1)

Bear Mountain New York is a great place to make a day trip whether with family or friends. Bear Mountain entertains many families with its affordable prices and beautiful scenery. For less than $20, you can paddle boat on their lake for an hour. Even if the water is not warm, you are still able to take the boats out, and can admire the leaves changing this time of year. Along with Paddle Boating, you can also bring a picnic lunch, or grill with the many grills placed all around the lake. You can also bring your bikes and ride around the lake or put on your sneakers and hike the trails of bear mountain. There are also many recreational fields for people to enjoy many different sports. I encourage you to take the drive out to bear mountain, because for a very low price, you can have a full days worth of fun!

Kayaking and Rafting While its still Warm!

-

Even though it is the end of September, the weather is still warm enough to get a good beach day or a rafting trip in! Over this past weekend, I took a trip to French town Nj to go white water rafting with a few friends. We were expecting the water to be really cold, but it was in the 80′s, so the water felt great! If you do not want to get wet on your river adventure, you can always rent a kayak where you will stay dry. This is a great time of year to get out on the water while the leaves are changing. There are many benefits to heading out during this season to raft, but the best advantage is there are less people there, giving you better prices and less of a wait to get to the bus that drives you to the river from the parking lot. If you get a chance to head out to the Delaware river, you will have your choice of companies to choose from. I have always used NJ River Rafting because there is a floating bbq at the halfway point of the river where lunch is included. Prices vary depending on the season, but you will get about 4 hours of entertainment for about $25 a person.
