It’s way in the corner of the Monadnock region, but it’s definitely well worth the drive: Washburn’s Windy Hill Orchard in Greenville, New Hampshire. Take your whole family on a tractor-drawn hayride into a huge apple orchard. You can choose from lots of varieties of apples, stop for a while in the meadow, and pick up a pumpkin. They have regular orange pumpkins and a white variety — in all sizes!
When you get back to the parking area, stop at the gift shop and enjoy a hot cider or hot coffee, and the best caramel apple you’ve ever tasted. If you still have energy to spare, purchase a ticket to walk through the corn maze. It’s challenging and fun! All said and done, your family will have an experience they’ll always remember!
