Best of Philly 2009: Apple-picking
Johnsons Corner Farm
At Johnson’s, there’s a fruit or veggie for all seasons, and for every fruit or veggie, there’s a festival to go with it. These farm folks celebrate the harvest of their strawberries, blueberries, pumpkins, corn and apples — and it’s contagious. The music and baked goods and cookouts and hayrides out “to go a-pickin’” are so Garrison Keillor that before you’re even done plucking your apples, you’ll be planning your return trip to the 56-year-old South Jersey family farm for pumpkin season. The pickin’s good seven days a week, and they’ll weigh your bounty, charge by the pound, and then send you on your way to go make that pie.
