June through October, Bayfield area orchards offer fresh picked berries, cherries, pears, apples, vegetables and all the products made with these locally grown produce - ciders, jellies, jams, pies, mustards, maple syrup and more.
Hauser's Orchard is one of our favorite stops whenever we tour
the orchards on the hill above Bayfield
Fall, September through October, is one of our favorite times of year to tour the orchards. This is when apples are season and the fall colors are out. In year's past we've caught both during Bayfield's famous Apple Festival (traditionally the first weekend in October) One year we decided to stop by a week early to avoid some of the crowds. A bonus was also catching the Scarecrow Festival.
The orchards, area artisans, local businesses, and families all competed to create interesting, unique, and fun scarecrows to decorate the town and the region surrounding the town of Bayfield. The festival generally runs from early September to mid-October

Apple Hill Farm is at the corner of County J and County I
We stopped in at Rabideaux's Orchard.
In addition to fresh-picked apples, they also offer pick-your-own which attracted a flock of people to their fields to have some fun and save some money at the same time.
Our next stop was at the Bayfield Apple Company - whose scarecrow "Sunny the Sounder" welcomed visitors to their shop. We know their products through gift baskets at Wisconsinmade.com and sampling their tasty apple butter and apple mustard.
< < < Jo looks over the selections in the retail-gift shop.
