One of our favorite family activities is picking fruit! It is fun for any age and we all enjoy the rewards of our work. As strawberry and blueberry picking comes to an end, we look forward to the apple and pumpkin picking in fall. Silverman’s Farm in Easton, Connecticut is one of our old haunts. They have tractor rides, apple picking, and an animal farm. We let each of our children hold their own basket and fill it with as many apples as they can find. Silvermans also has a pumpkin patch, so it’s a perfect spot for pre-Halloween fun!
