Apple butter, apple pie, apple crisp, apple blondies… if you haven’t gotten your hands on farm fresh apples, what are you waiting for?!

A short one mile drive from Stonelick State Park, Pringles Orchard provides ten rows of apple trees to pick from. Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Melrose, Winesap and Red Delicious have all ripened. Pick by the bag; half peck, peck or bushel with prices ranging from $8-$23.

Our family particularly loves Pringles Orchard for the small farm family business feel. Everyone needs a trip out to rural Ohio to connect with nature and farm life; add in apple picking and you have a perfect fall activity. Pringles keeps fresh cider in the refrigerator and popcorn popping with varying open hours. Follow along their social media for daily operations.
Crowds stay light at Pringles Orchard which leaves ample apples for the rest of us! Rows of trees are so full of fresh apples, you could pick hundreds. A quaint pumpkin patch charges 49 cents a pound with pumpkins ranging from medium to large. Pack your boots and bring along your favorite photographer, the orchard is a must this October!
From 1p-8p, the annual Apple Fest at Pringles encourages family fun with all day u-picks, crafts for kids, vendors in the pecan grove and food for purchase.
A trip to Pringles is not complete without a visit to one of Southern Ohio’s great State Parks. Bring your kiddo’s fishing poles along or pack a picnic for a couple hours at Stonelick Lake. The trees at the lake have already begun to turn for autumn, giving off beautiful shades of orange, red and brown.
Stonelick State Park offers 1,058 acres of wooded trails, kayaking, camping and disc golf. Work up an appetite for those juicy Pringles Orchard apples as you relax near the still waters or explore one of the many clean trails. Trilobite, brachiopods and cephalopods keep fossil hunters busy through the once-sea-covered region.
