Fresh air, pretty trees, apple cider doughnuts, hay rides and some bungee trampolines - that's autumn on New York farms. Some are rustic with just the fruit, others are like a carnival.
* Go early. Most of the orchards are packed by mid-day. Weekdays are less crowded but the hay rides, music etc. won't be happening.
* Be prepared for lots of walking in uneven, possibly muddy terrain. Boots, layers and baby carriers instead of strollers.
* Bring cash, lots of it. Most farms don't take credit cards and all the food and activities add up quickly. If you're just there for the apples, make sure your kids know that in advance.
* Call or check the farm's website to confirm apples and activities are available.
