It’s apple-picking time at the lake, and one of our favorite places to visit each fall is the Apple Barn Orchard & Winery near Elkhorn. Although last weekend was overcast and a bit cool, one of our staff members and her family ventured to the Apple Barn and enjoyed an afternoon of apple picking in between rain drops. The acres of orchards produce an abundance of apple varieties, including Honey Gold, Cortland, Honey Crisp, Ida Red and more. If you’re not feeling as ambitious – no worries, you can purchase apples in the Apple Barn Store along with their famous fresh apple cider donuts. Also, if you’re an aficionado of fruit wines, you won’t want to miss their tasting lounge and bar where you can taste their award-winning wines.
