Hicks Orchard, Granville, NY

It was a beautiful fall weekend. Yesterday, Eddie and I went for a drive to Hicks Orchard in Granville, NY. They have a U-Pick orchard which we didn't do this time. We stood in line for about 10 minutes to get their delicious apple cider donuts and hot apple cider. Their barn-shop is full of apple products, maple products, local honey and many fall decorations. It smelled wonderful in there. You could watch them through one window as they made cider. You could watch the donuts being made at the other end of the barn. The orchard had activities of all kinds for the kids. There were goats, a bouncy house, make your own scarecrow booth and much more. They were selling maple flavored cotton candy...which I didn't sample, but I imagine it's yummy. Hicks has grown over the years. They now have a wine tasting barn which is a great addition to their business. I'm not a wine drinker, but I know NY has many vineyards and good wine products. It was a fun day. AJ was at work, so he couldn't go with us...but he has been enjoying the donuts we brought home!
