My backyard. Free parking. I hope you like golden delicious. There might be some macs on there too. Better for you than for the birds. Oh, all organic. Never got around to spraying this year.

There might be some cucumbers, zuccini, and some tomatoes left, too.

I plan on going to Brace Farms right here in Dallas. I bake about 20 apple pies each season for friends/family/neighbors. I'm excited to do my first apple picking in PA!

I couldn't find a website, but found this little snippet:

Heckman's is the closest to you...they really have great produce! If you hang a right onto rt 115 off of 903, it's not far...past the raceway, past Sierra View, all the way to the bottom of Effort Mt. Heckman's is on the right.

Do Brace's allow you to pick apples?

I know Dymond's allow blueberry and cherry picking, I don't know about apples.

I always went to Miller's Orchard growing up in NEPA. They have grown significantly, and I haven't been there in a couple years (heck of a commute from Ca). But if I still lived in Pa that's where I'd go
Miller's Orchards Farm Market, Giants Eagles Corn Maze, PA Corn Maze, NFL Corn Maze
