Fall is on the way! The days of cozy sweaters, evening bonfires, bright autumn leaves, and crisp, cool morning air are just around the corner. Many families look to complete the fall experience by heading out to farms and orchards to pick the perfect pumpkins and apples. Here are some of the best spots in the area to make fall family memories.

Royal Oak Farm OrchardRoal Oak Farm Tractor Ride

Located just over the state line, in Harvard, IL, this 120 acre farm and orchard is a prime spot for family fun! Not only can you pick your own apples and pumpkins, but they also have an entertainment area full of activities that the kids will enjoy. A petting zoo, train rides, hay rides and orchard tours provide hours of entertainment. Don't miss their Amaze ‘N Apples apple tree maze - the only one of its kind in the country! Guests of The Abbey are able to get free passes to their weekend orchard tours, just stop at the Concierge desk. (15 minutes from The Abbey)

Pearce's Farm Stand
Don't let the name fool you. This isn't a tiny edge-of-the-road farm stand, though it did start that way in the late 1960's. This complex at the corner of Cty F and Hwy 67 between Fontana and Williams Bay is a favorite for locals and tourists alike. Spend some time picking pumpkins of all sizes in their patch, then watch the kids play on the jumping hay bales. If you're up for a challenge, find your way through their 12 acre corn maze. On festival weekends, you can even take to the sky on a helicopter tour! (3 minutes from The Abbey)

Apple Barn Orchard & Winery
With 14 different varieties of apples, you're sure to pick the perfect ones to please your taste buds. Located between Delavan and Elkhorn, this property has been in their family since 1848, and they love sharing it and their history with visitors. Fresh air, a beautiful country setting, and over 4,000 apple trees to walk through give you the perfect orchard experience. If you're thirsty, pick up some of their home made apple cider or one of their award winning fruit wines while you're there! (20 minutes from The Abbey)

The Elegant Farmer
On weekends, head to The Elegant Farmer outside of Mukwonago for a fun family farm experience. You won't miss their farm's smiling face! Pick your own apples or pumpkins, then go for a ride - they give hayrides, pony rides, and you can even go for a train ride on one of The East Troy Electric Railroad's turn of the century trains. When you're done with that, make your own caramel apple or dine on apple cider donuts in their donut shack. Of course, you're visit won't be complete until you purchase one of their famous apple pies baked in a paper bag. (35 minutes from The Abbey)

Busy Barns Adventure Farm
You'll have a full day of fun when you take a trip to Busy Barns Adventure Farm in Fort Atkinson.  Take a hayride out to the pumpkin patch to find your ideal carving pumpkin, then test your skills at the 4 acre trivia corn maze. Launch mini-pumpkins and gourds in the air with their pumpkin launcher or conquer the obstacle course. If you like animals, you'll love feeding the farm animals and chasing the piglets. Round out the day by taking pictures in their special photo stops to make the memories of your adventure last. (50 minutes from The Abbey)
