A little bit farther from the traditional apple picking spots, Fishkill is accessible only by car. That said, if you can swing the transport logistics, it's an idyllic place to spend an afternoon. Fishkill Farms is an organic, family-owned farm that's a regular at NYC farmer's markets, but visiting the property yourself is a special treat. Along with a farm store, they've also set up a cider garden where they're pouring up housemade alcoholic ciders over stunning views of the rolling fields. Once you're well-lubricated, you can grab a basket and hit the land to collect everything from apples and peaches to pears, sunflowers and other veggies.
