Pick Your Fall Fun in Amish Country

Grab a bucket and stroll the orchards at Kercher’s Sunrise Orchard in Goshen for some great picks. Their apple trees are loaded with more than a dozen popular varieties ranging from Braeburn to Rome Beauty and perfect for baking and munching.  After pickin’ do some sippin’.  Tap a chilled cup of fresh-pressed apple cider from the barrel then bring home a jug.  It’s always a crowd pleaser.
