When I went to Homestead two years ago, I really fell for (or is that reached for?) their tart Jonathan apples. I definitely got my fair share of Jonathan's this time. After my last visit, I took home about 18 pounds that quickly went once I got home (mostly because they were left in my trunk for too long), so this time I hauled in 23 pounds and have learned my lesson! I paid about $18 for them ($0.99/lb up to 20 lbs and $0.79/lb after 20 lbs). The farm still had its corn maze, but I wasn't in the mood to get lost when I all I wanted was to get home and start eating what I harvested.
The farm offers lots of other fresh fruits and vegetables, but ya can't go wrong with their apples. I enjoyed the picking (if that's the right way to say it) since I could grab a few apples out of the reach of the average picker and got some larger ones. As long you take care of the pesticide, the apples will taste better than anything at your supermarket. So make your way out River Road, past the large houses on their incredibly large properties, and get some apples before I come back for another 23 pounds.
