By Meghan Friedland, Editor/Publisher Macaroni Kid Greater Danbury, CT September 3, 2021

"Hop in car, it won't be long...we're driving to the apple farm!" - a line from one of my all-time favorite children's books, Apples Apples. YES, Apple Season is here... so if you are ready to pick your own, plan a trip with the family this weekend to one of these local farms!
