As most things go in Texas, we’ve been known to have some behemoths when it comes to orchards. Throughout Texas, these fruit farms produce some of the Lone Star State’s best fall treats, including fresh apples! Many of them also complement their produce with stores or special events featuring their goods baked or cooked into culinary masterpieces you’ll want to take home. This makes the fall-time experience that much tastier. Here are three Texas orchards taking fall family fun to the next level!
