I’ve been hearing rumors that something called “Fall” is happening in parts of the US. I wouldn’t know anything about it as I sit outside in shorts and flip-flops writing this blog post, but my Instagram feed has been filling up with more beards, flannels, earth-toned sweaters, and yellow leaves so it must be true.
I’m pretty sure nothing says “Fall” quite like an apple-picking excursion to your local orchard. If you live in Washington, this is pretty commonplace, but down in Southern California you have to work a little harder to find a good orchard. Luckily, my wife and I found a place called Riley’s Stone Soup Farm.
Nestled in the San Jacinto foothills just outside Riverside. Riley’s Stone Soup farm is in an area that is filled with ancient apple orchards. The owner told us that the apple trees we were picking from were over 100 years old. All that experience must be good for something, because the apples were pretty darn tasty!
If apple picking isn’t your thing, don’t you fret. There’s plenty to do from cider making to tomahawk throwing. And let’s face it, if you don’t want to throw a tomahawk then there’s something fundamentally wrong with you.
If you’re curious about Riley’s Apple farm, or if you just want to see some crazy shenanigans from our apple picking adventure, then check out the video (above) and consider subscribing to our YouTube channel.
Also, there’s nothing we at Yonderstoke like better than fall excursions to make us feel like we can still have seasons in Southern California. So, if you’ve got a favorite fall activity in the LA area please tell us about it in the comments.
