Apple & Berry Picking in Oak Glen

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!

Recently my family and I took a day trip to Riley’s Apple Farm in Oak Glen, California to go apple picking! Needless to say, it’s hardly September and Autumn tends to hit Southern California a tad bit late, so it wasn’t exactly the perfect weather for apple picking, but luckily it wasn’t too hot. If you’re planning on visiting Oak Glen, I suggest waiting maybe a month to have the pumpkin picking, too! The scenery will definitely be a lot more Autumnal and perfect for pictures.

We had around a two hour drive to get to the farm and we got there around 10 am so it wouldn’t be crowded. The first thing we did when we got here was eat very shocking, I know.

Of course we had to try some apple pie (and the cinnamon roll didn’t look too bad either), and we just devoured all this food in a little bakery with the cutest decorations.

Probably the best cinnamon roll I’ve ever had – I’m craving it just looking at this!

This looks like a disaster but it’s just a slice of apple pie haha

Getting ready for Autumn? Don’t mind if I do..

After we enthusiastically ate the pies, we thought the day could only go downhill from here (what’s better than pie?)

But, apple picking was definitely the highlight of the day and it was soooo much fun. We all just grabbed a bag and started gathering!

We obviously took a million and one pictures and it took wayy too long! I usually prefer to be behind the camera, so luckily my sister is letting me exploit her on my blog! Haha just kidding, but here’s a link to her blog if you wanna read her one (1) post from a few years ago.

After apples, we went straight to grab some strawberries and raspberries! These were a little harder to find because they were so small and surrounded by bees! I was too busy squirming and squealing to even focus on the berries. Does anyone else get like this around bees?

We paid for the apples and berries then headed to the nature trails to walk around and explore all the plants and scenery! There were still a ton of bees but I gathered myself and made it through without getting stung – I feel like I need to get stung just once to realize that it’s not that bad and then maybe I can relax!

We didn’t get very far into the trail, but everyone was saying it gets super complicated and steep towards the end, so if you want a fun nature hike this is perfect for you!

Afterwards, we headed back to the main picnic area to grab some food, and I had to try the corn-on-the-cob, it looked so good (and it tasted pretty good, too!)17811114-f9aa-40d8-bf35-2d72680684db

My sister got apple cider – obviously the most important thing to buy at an apple farm! It tasted super sweet and there was even an area set up where you can make your own!

And that’s it! This post was loaded with a ton of photos but it was super fun to write about this trip! Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed! If you have any questions just comment or email me using giraffeview.blog@gmail.com!
