Orchard Exploration

Today is the first day of fall which means it's officially apple picking season! We know that pumpkin seems to be the top runner in fall produce these days, but we think apples should get just as much spotlight too. Here in the Lexington area we not only have one great, local orchard -- we have two! Have you ever been to Evans Orchard or Boyds Orchard? They're both absolutely fantastic and so much fun!

Are you ready for some football?
