Where to go apple picking in Southern California? This is a question Matthew and I ask ourselves every year during the fall. We’ve always wanted to find a beautiful apple orchard that feels like you’re out in the country. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a place right in LA, for obvious reasons, but there is a great little town of Oak Glen, just 90 minutes outside of the city. After visiting for the afternoon, filling our baskets with apples, pigging out on apple cider donuts, and quenching our thirst with apple cider, we are determined to come back! They have an apple butter contest later in the year, and I heard they have an amazing pie shop! It would be so romantic to visit when it’s even colder and we can bundle up in jackets and scarves and drink hot cocoa! One season at a time though! Here are some photos from our apple-filled fall afternoon. First stop, Riley’s Apple Farm and then Snow-Line Orchard for some donuts and cider!
Welcome to M Loves M! My name is Mara and I created this lifestyle site in 2009 as a place to share my love of fashion, beauty, food and entertaining. I moved from Southern California to Idaho and love adventuring with my husband Matthew, our two children, and our dog Ginger. We're also pregnant with baby #3, due this autumn! I strive to create a site that’s relatable to women, while also being inspirational. I’m so glad you stopped by!
