We sent Studio 5 contributor, Ashley Kewish to find some great places for this yummy fall fruit.
Farnsworth Farms in Sandy has plenty of U-pick options open to the public. They also have some fun upcoming events for the fall season. The “Great Pumpkin Festival” begins October 11th and runs through the 16th. They will be showing a movie outside on a giant screen with lot’s of cider, hot chocolate, caramel apples….and more!
South Ridge Farms in Santaquin (also referred to as the “the big red barn”) has tons of apples to choose from. You can pick from apples like fuji, gala, golden delicious, pink lady and much more. South Ridge Farms offers school tours and hayrides through the pumpkin patch for the public.
Zollinger Fruit and Tree Farm in Logan has 13 different fresh apple varieties available to the public. This farm has been owned and operated by the Zollinger family for over 100 years. They also make their own juice and cider. Just in time for fall, they offer squash and pumpkins too. This is a great option for those who live up north.
