There's a lot more than apples at Afton Apples. The family-owned and -operated orchard in the St. Croix Valley also has raspberries, strawberries, and pumpkins for all of your Minnesota-grown pie filling needs. There's even a corn maze, with three different difficulty levels that are all newly designed for 2021. In October, the orchard transforms into a party, with three weekends of fun during the Afton Apple Fest. Check out a magic show, listen to some local music, play games and try out an array of tasty items like apple fritters, caramel apples, and more. The area is full of apple orchards, including Aamodt's (Stillwater) and Pine Tree (Stillwater), so you have a ripe range of options for delicious fall fun. (Sheila Regan)
