Local Farms To Explore Because Today's The First Official Day Of Fall
Ready, set for Fall? Because it's a go. Technically anyway. I mean, today's the kick-off date according to the calendar in The Skimm app on my phone. Sure, it's still 70 or 80 degrees on any given afternoon. But eventually we'll all be trading in our slides, (ripped) denim, and tees for booties, infinity scarves, and flannels. (Flannels are apparently a "must wear" for any good captures of outdoorsy adventures this time of year.)
In the meantime, however, it's really all about the food. And honestly, I can't think of a better excuse to celebrate the changing of the seasons than motoring over to one - or all - of these places to indulge in some autumnal treats and (super cute) photo opps for social.
- Phantom Farms in Cumberland for pies and more - The apple we bought was one of the best we've ever had. (Like, ever!) In addition to baked goods, they also have coffee, hot chocolate, jams & jellies, and a fantastic gift shop area to browse. One other thing we couldn't help noticing was how great (aka, pothole free) the roads in the Cumberland area are.
- The Farmer's Omelette, located on Knight's Farm in North Scituate, for breakfast or lunch - Their pancakes and eggs are beyond blog-worthy, as are the apple cider donuts, an old fashioned cake style they've become known for. Bring some cash along or use the ATM on the premises tho because they #donut take credit cards.
- Salisbury Farm in Johnston and Casey Farm in Saunderstown are favorites of frequent contributor Madalyn Tundis. Definitely follow her lead and check them out for your next apple or pumpkin picking expedition this season.
