How to Find Pick-Your-Own Apples Near You

October 16, 2014 1:04 pm

You’ve always wanted to take the kids apple picking, but finding an orchard seems a bit tricky. Fortunately, apple orchards are becoming increasingly popular, and they’re actually much more common than you might think! Here are two great websites that will help you locate places to pick apples locally.

Just like the name implies, this convenient website provides information about all of the different ways to pick apples across the country. Simply select our state’s name from the cumulative list, and the site will show you detailed information about the different facilities across the state. The orchards are even separated by county to make it easier to find one locally.

Local Harvest
This is a go-to site for all types of organic and local food information, but it’s also very beneficial for finding and researching information about apple orchards. Local Harvest’s interactive map enables you to browse by wide areas, and the site also offers information about upcoming events at the orchards. Once you find the closest place to pick apples, check the ratings from other members and read a full description of all of its facilities.

Tutti Frutti: Frozen Yogurt with Mochi Toppings

October 8, 2014 12:03 pm

Self-serve frozen yogurt shops are the latest dessert trend to sweep the country, and Ellicott City’s Tutti Frutti is one of the most popular in the area. This modern shop is decorated with futuristic white furniture and a row of frozen yogurt dispensers offering a wide variety of flavors.

Tutti Frutti’s flavors include both tart and creamy classics like almond, cheesecake, and taro, and they also include soy yogurts and sorbets for those with milk allergies. Guests can serve themselves from the yogurt station and the expansive selection of toppings, and then the friendly staff weighs each bowl and calculates the cost by the ounce. Though the shop’s formula is similar to most other frozen yogurt places, regulars appreciate Tutti Frutti because of its high quality yogurt and its late-night hours.

Tutti Frutti is open 11 a.m. to midnight every day of the week.
