Apple picking in Arkansas is a tradition for many of us. Filling up your baskets with delicious Arkansas-grown apples while you eat your breakfast right off the tree is an experience not to be missed.
This is just another reason why I love Arkansas. I love to talk about the wonders of this state. There are so many amazing things to do with kids in Arkansas (like in Russellville, Fort Smith, and Hot Springs for example), we have cool places to stay, amazing state parks for camping, and apple orchards!
You can do it all here. Which is also why you should check out my EPIC Arkansas Bucket List.
So, where are the best apple orchards in Arkansas? Where can you pick your own apples here?
Cox Berry Farm and Nursery in Clarksville
Experience a real working berry farm and pumpkin patch. We raise strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, apples, and pumpkins! We are a family farm, enjoying living, working, and playing in the country. We are located on Redlick Mountain with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains while you pick and a wonderful view of the valley on your way back down. We offer both already-picked and u-pick options for many of our fruits.Cox Berry Farm

Always support your farmers.
While I was writing this article, I learned that the orchard I grew up going to is now a subdivision. Several years ago, it was sold and the trees were pushed over.
I feel like I am partly to blame. I don’t know why they decided to give up farming but the fact that this all happened without me knowing means that I haven’t been apple picking at their orchard in a long time. If more of us would take the time to visit farms instead of the grocery store, we could support these farmers and the great work they do.
Maybe there would be more “u-pick” apple orchards in Arkansas!
But, don’t let me get you down with my rant…get out there and start picking!
