Apple Picking at Ward's Orchard, Madison, NH

Patty came up with the wonderful idea to go apple picking this weekend. I asked the Danforth Bay office information about a local apple orchard and they immediately told me about Ward's Orchard in Madison, NH. This should have been a 10-15 minute drive from Danforth Bay but due to no signs in the direction that we were coming from (King Pine) it took us more like 30 minutes.

Parking was very limited but they had lots and lots of apples. This place was bigger than I thought it would be. Apples were very good as well. Picking on 9/22 they had Macintosh and Cortlands. Next week they will have red and golden delicious.

A 1/2 bushel of apples cost only $12. We had a good time picking apples. Ward's Orchard is definately recommended if you stay in the local Conway, Freedom, Tamworth area.
They had some pumpkins for sale but that was about it.,

You forgot to mention, the views from this location are amazing. The view looks right down the valley and Mt. Washington is seen clearly and majestically at the end of the view. You can pick your apples and it's fun to pack a lunch and picnic under the trees with the smell of the orchard, the apples and fresh air surrounding you.
