A visit to Binder’s Apples and Alpacas farm

It’s been a couple of years since we hit Binder’s Apples and Alpacas farm up by Mexico, but yesterday evening we decided to take advantage of the (finally) sunny weather and binge on u-pick apples. It’s only late-season varieties at this point (Ultra Gold, Rome, Enterprise, Granny Smith, Fuji and Yorks) but the trees are loaded with them and at $0.90/lb, they’re a great deal. Directions and more details available at their website. Hours are 10am – 6pm Monday to Friday, 3pm – 6pm Saturday and 1pm – 6pm on Sunday. Keep in mind that not only is this their home but Binder’s is also a working alpaca farm with lots of big guard dogs. Respect their hours of operation and it’s probably a good idea to leave your four-legged friend at home.
