From Empire to McIntosh to Golden Delicious, apple growers in the state have been perfecting this fruit for over 300 years! Take the time during the height of picking season to visit one of the local Saratoga County orchards and pick your own apples straight from the trees. While you are there, grab some delicious produce, apple cider, cider donuts and other special treats.
