When we moved to Wexford, we looked for a place to go strawberry and blueberry picking. In this search we found Soergal Orchards right here in Wexford. Soergal not only has pick your own, but it also has fresh baked good, farm fresh produce, fresh cider, local/regional specialty items and so much more.
There is so much to see and do at Soergal Orchards on a typical day, but it’s pumpkin time so there is so much more to do! On weekends in October they have their Fall Festival. We decided to go check this out today. There were carnival style games, hay ride, pony rides and much more. They open up their bbq stand, cider press and bring in additional vendors. This on top of having bins and bins of all types of squash products, pumpkins, gourds, acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash and more. They also have a pumpkin patch open to pick your own pumpkins. That is where we headed.
The boys each picked out a pumpkin to take home. We will carve them closer to Halloween.
We also went and picked a peck of apples from their apple orchard. The boys had never picked apples off a tree before so this was fun for them. Blake ended up picking about 3 apples and Colby picked 7 or so.
We stopped and had BBQ for lunch. This was really good. Colby had a pulled pork sandwich that I wished I had myself. I had “Dirty Mac” which was mac and cheese with pulled pork. I liked the concept, but he mac and cheese was just OK. Blake had a hot dog and Richard had nachos with pork on top.
Before we left we stopped into the store and picked up a gallon of cider, 2 half pies (one apple walnut and the other dutch apple, apple cider donuts, cookies and 2 chocolate covered donuts. We have a lot, but everything we’ve purchased at their bakery in the past we have enjoyed.
We didn’t spend money on any of the games. Each ticket cost $1, some games were 1 ticket and others were 2. It was even more tickets to take the tractor ride up the hill to the pumpkins. I am way too frugal to spend money on things like this.
I’m ready to dig my teeth into the apples we got and use them to make yummy apple treats! I’m sure there will be at least an apple recipe coming from me soon.
So local friends… check out Soergal Orchards now in the fun fall activities or another time just to get their yummy baked goods. I know I’ll be back!
