The do-it-yourself apple picking starts with a tractor ride to the orchards and a brief talk about Mercier’s history. Granny Smith, Pink Lady and Golden delicious apples among others will be ready to pick weather permitting. The tractor ride is $5 per person; 2 and younger, free. $8 for a half-peck of apples. On your way out, be sure to pick up some hot apple pies and treats.
