'Tis is the season to make apple pies and what better way to do so than with fresh picked apples? Feeling very seasonal, Melissa and I headed down to one of our favorite places, Sweet Berry Farm, in Middletown. With the weather cooperating and thoughts of great pictures and even better food in our future we took a very leisurely Sunday drive. Sweet Berry Farm offers seasonal “pick your own” everything but today picking apples that would later be turned into delicious warm apple pie was the driving force in my morning.
Macintosh, Gala, Macoun, Red Delicious, Golden Supreme, Cortland, Honey Crisp... the list goes on. Sweet Berry has no shortage of apples, and we quickly filled our pre-paid apple bag. For four years Melissa and I tried to get to any orchard before the season ended. One year we arrived on a Sunday only to find out that this one particular orchard was picked clean the day before. This wasn’t the case at Sweet Berry Farm; with rows of fragrant fruit surrounding us, we had a field day.
Typically we spend a fair amount of time in the post and beam farmhouse that has been transformed into a gorgeous farmstand... and who wouldn’t, when you see what’s inside. You’ll find scrumptious desserts as well as produce picked fresh from the fields and numerous other tasty offerings. We’ve always encountered friendly smiles and great service. That's why Sweet Berry Farm should be a “Rhode Island Must” on your list. Enjoy!
