The destination is a lovely, quaint, family run pick-your-own apple orchard called George's Hill Orchards in South Lancaster, MA (central MA) that I have been going to for as long as I can remember and it happens to be perfectly nestled along some twisty, old cow-path type roads. They have a huge field/parking area, so I know holding us MINIs there would not be an issue.
Date: OCTOBER 21st, 2007
Time: 12:30pm meet up
Place: Meet up at Papa Razzi on Rt. 2, then a scenic drive over to George's Hill Orchards,
Then we'll be taking the scenic route over to Herbert's Candies and Chocolate Mansion that is right off Rt. 117. They have a "Make your own Sundae" to go along with their ice cream choices, so it should be even more fun! No reason not to make it now -- Apples and Ice Cream!
Last year it rained... a lot... but we still had a phenomenal turn out regardless. So, again this year, so there is no doubts, we will have the event RAIN OR SHINE - but hopefully we'll have SHINE!
Some of the things at the farm:
Homemade pies, etc.
A really good grill type "restaurant" on the top of the hill
Ginger Gold, Royal Gala, McIntosh, Cortland, McCoun, Empire, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Mustu apples to pick Homemade apple cider donuts to DIE FOR
Families are more than welcome to come as well!
Dogs are allowed in the orchard and by the barn as long as they are on a leash!
I'm tentatively in, but there are a couple of track events that weekend which might win out (end of the season and all). This event was a *blast* last year (my very first New England MINI run, I think!), so if you can make it, please do!
looks like this will be my first MINI event can't wait!
