I was walking home with my kids from school the other day and my daughter looked up and saw the first oak leaves turning yellow on a tree on the street. “It’s autumn,” she said.
I love fall because I think of warm potato soup with homemade french bread, apple muffins, and pear bread. Fall is that perfect time when you get some cool weather, have a steaming cup of hot cider, and feel your body warm to the touch. I have blogged about Bauman Farms which has the best family harvest festival in the area, in my opinion. But we have another local farm that has great cider and produce as well (as well as a fall festival).
EZ Orchards is located on the corner of Hazelgreen and Cordon Roads. It has great highway access (unlike Bauman Farms) and is my regular stop in the fall for my cider and produce fix. I find it really easy to get to and the cider is delicious.
They also have a shortcake stand which puts out yummy treats and of course these guys crank out the cider donuts which they sell a ton of. I know this blog is supposed to be about Salem Oregon home buying and selling real estate, but with the crisp air and first tastes of fall cider…I might have to put those posts on hold for a bit, while I enjoy our fabulous autumn.
