Happening next week:

The Brooklyn Kitchen is going apple picking! 

We’re heading to beautiful Stone Ridge Orchard in upstate New York on October 12 for a fun-filled afternoon of apple picking, cider drinking and merry making.  The apple harvest is at it’s peak so you’ll have a large variety to choose from, plus the fall foliage should be magnificent. 

Located in the Roundout River Valley between the Shawangunk and Catskill Mountains, Stone Ridge Orchard raises a large variety of sustainably grown fruits and vegetables on land that has been a productive, diversified farm for nearly 200 years.  The farm also includes a pumpkin patch, market feering produce, sweet and savor pies, quiches, tamales and cider.  Join us for a delicious, fall afternoon. 

We’ll provide; transportation (2 hour bus ride each way), coffee, morning treat and snacks for bus, entrance to the farm, a hay ride, ¼ peck of apples (about 2 ½ lb bag), and of course, a killer apple pie recipe!
