Apple picking in New York

StoneyRidge Orchard

Dan and I will do anything to escape a) the van and b) prepackaged food. So today the two of us detoured to StoneyRidge Orchard in Erin, Ny., to pick apples and fix both of those problems.

There is something quintessentially American about apple picking. StoneyRidge grows about a dozen different types of apples, and they have names like “Freedom” and “Liberty.” Although the trees were marked, we had trouble finding those specific apples. We ran up and down the orchard hill yelling that we were looking for America.

We never found Freedom, but Liberty tastes delicious.
