In Maine, September and October bring apples and pears.
In Hope, just 6.5 miles from Camden, the Hope Orchards let you enjoy their fields full of trees of apples and pears. The road to Hope is very beautiful, along the Megunticook lake and in the woods. The area around is wonderful. Walking into their orchards gives you a sense of peacefulness, and you will be surprised by the different qualities of fruit that they grow. Once you are there you can taste the fruits directly from the trees. Then you can take home the variety that you like better. Just pick them by yourself and... what you eat is free!
In the end of September through October the apple cider is pressed. It is not comparable to what you buy in the supermarkets. The taste is so different and so really true. This is a real treat!
