Autumn is Orchard Time

Cider Press
With fall officially here it's time to visit the local apple orchards. Always filled with great apple products and corn stalks made into crazy things. Here's a list of the Orchards near Perrot for a trip to bountiful.

Ecker's Apple Farm-west of Centerville on Hwy 35 but before the turn off on Delaney to the Winery. Doesn't that sound like a locals directions. Call ahead at 608-539-2652. Ask about their wagon rides and the Honeycrisp Hootenany in October. Don't forget to pick up a pie.

Ferguson's Morningside Orchard-east of Centerville on Hwy93/54, exit on the Little Tamarack Road before Galesville. Visit their country store and lots for kids to do from A-maze-ing Maze, Pumpkin Patch and Barnyard. Call ahead at 608-539-4239.

Orchards, Bluffs and Corn at Sacia's

Sacia Orchards-farther east of Centerville on Hwy 53 closest to Galesville. One of the largest orchards in Western Wisconsin. Pick your own or pick up a pie. Call ahead at 608-582-2511. Apple Festival in October.

Be sure to sample the famous Honeycrisp Apples. Maybe you'll find a new favorite.

Drugans Castle Mound Golf Course

We spent a lovely fall day with golfing18 holes and Brunch.

Fall is the best time to golf especially when the Packers are playing. Funny no one was in front of us or behind.

Drugans Entrance
Strawberry Gomphrena on the 15th
I "chicked" my husband today on the course and he had to flip for the Bloody's. Yes it was a good day at Drugans.

Then a stop for cider at the Orchards.


  1. Our 100 yr old press looks just like the pic you took... We are pressing tomorrow.

  2. Ah, Fall is here there's a nip in the air and the craving for apples. Tonight for dessert we'll have Queen's apple (of course), cut slices drizzled with carmel topping and whipped cream.
