A beautiful early October Saturday, we took the family to apple pick and get some treats in the store. The apple orchard trees were closed off, but they had large containers to pick your own from that were collected by the farm. Inside the store there are fresh baked goods, honey, maple syrup and other treats and preserves. I believe... More

Blue Jay is a nice drive if you're coming from coastal Fairfield County... feels as if you're driving into the countryside even though if you go just a bit further you end up in the heart of Danbury :). Apple picking, hay rides, large pumpkin patch, and a relatively expansive country store with a good selection of farm products. Stereo-typically... More

Best time to visit is late summer and fall when apples and other fruits and pumpkins are ready for picking. Pick your own or buy from the large indoor fruit stand. Fresh apple pies also for sale. There are orchard hayrides for families.

The chance to pick your own apples is a great experience, especially for city dwellers and kids who have little sense of how fruits get to the table. I grew up in this area, and appreciate that they are still a going small business.

Great variety of apples plus pies, preserves, and other offerings. The shop is well stocked but you can also pick your own apples--a particularly fun activity for families (as are the wagon rides).
