Sponsels Minnesota Harvest

Sponsel's Minnesota Harvest Orchard.
We had an amazing day. I love fall. I love scarves. I love boots. I love apple picking. I love vests. I love tights. I love being outside and not sweating. Fall literally makes me giddy.
We had an amazing day.

That being said, if you're looking for an amazing orchard, Sponsel's would not be my recommendation. That being said, they were closed last year, were reopend by new owners this year and is my understanding they're still trying to figure this whole thing out. We went on a weekday and the only thing we could do was ride the tractor to pick apples. No animals (pony rides by charge on weekends), no corn pit, no corn maze ($5 per person age 2+ on weekends), no hay bales. That didn't stop us! We had a blast!

We ate apples.
Our favorites this year are Chestnut crab apples. They are really tiny so if a kid takes a few bits and is done, you don't feel like it's a huge waste).
We raced amongst the apple trees.
We ate more apples.
We enjoyed time with precious friends.
And we photographed our brood.
