The air is crisp, the leaves are bursting with color, and the apples are ripe for the pickin' ... it must be Fall! Use today's Plum Deal to take your family out for a leisurely tour of Tuken's Apple Orchard in the gorgeous countryside, and take home half a peck of hand-picked apples!
Tours through this lovely orchard in scenic West Alexandria are on Tuesday and Thursday from 11am to noon. You and your family will be guided by Frank, the owner and horticulturist of Tuken's. After the tour, spend as much time as you like visiting the Critter Corral petting area and handpicking half a peck of apples to take home with you. (That's about 7 lbs, for all you non-country folks!) Try all 40 apple varieties, or stick to your favorites. The branches are so laden with fruit that they bend almost to the ground, making apple-picking a snap even for the shortest members of your family.
Visit their new farm market and gift gallery store on the way out for fresh produce and interesting fun finds!
Tuken's is a family-owned orchard on 22 acres with over 3,500 apple trees. Pick apples yourself from trees that average about 12 feet high with branches so laden with fruit that they almost touch the ground! Tuken's has a huge display of pumpkins and autumn decor, as well as seasonal vegetables. Each vegetable is carefully hand picked and promptly displayed to meet even the most discriminating buyer's need for ultimate freshness and taste. Tuken's guarantees satisfaction with their fruits and vegetables, or they will replace it free of charge, no questions asked!
