Apple picking has become one of the Central Carolina Jaycees favorite fall traditions. Our chapter has never done this event together, but now we can’t imagine going a year without a trip to the orchard. This year, we headed to the Millstone Creak Orchard in Ramseur, North Carolina. The orchard was beautiful and family friendly. Most of the apples were high in the tree tops. Some of the members climbed to the top to get the best picks. Fortunately there were apples near the bottom so that the kids could pick a juicy apple take three bites then drop them on the ground. The picking didn’t last long for our apple buckets to be filled to the rim. We were able to pick apples, enjoy apple smoothies, and have a picnic while the kids played on the tire swing and humongous rock. What a great family day! If you missed we are sure to go back next year.
