Lynd's Fruit Farm = Fall Fun
October 11, 2011
Since 1919, Lynd's Fruit Farm in has drawn people from miles away for a day of fall fun in their fields and orchards. Located in the rolling hills east of Columbus in Pataskala, Lynd's is a beautiful sight on a crisp fall day. This past weekend, my wife and I embarked on our annual pilgrimage to stock on on some amazing Suncrisp apples (I think we can get through 20 pounds...) and I indulged in my weird addiction to pumpkins and squash for Halloween carving.
On beautiful day like last Saturday, there were hundreds of people picking apples, taking hay rides, enjoying apple fritters and shopping for farm-fresh produce. But on such a vast expanse of land studded with apple-laden trees, we were enveloped in our own world.
Beside all the delicious apples, Lynd's has lots to see and do - hay rides, pumpkin patches, a corn maze, a farmers market, bouncy houses for kids, great prepared food and more. In all, a tremendously great way to spend a weekend day in Central Ohio - taking in the bounty of the land around us. Do you have an apple-picking tradition?
