We had a great time at Weston Red Barn in Weston, Missouri. We arrived just after 2 pm, when the school tours are wrapping up and free admission hours begin.
We picked apples at the orchard. There were a large number of bees around, but they never stung us. They seemed very content to hop about the apple trees and didn't bother us at all. If you're still and quiet in the middle of the orchard, you can hear the hum of their hive. So bring an epi-pen if need be... but I don't think you'll need it.
There are several different sorts of animals about including rabbits, cows and a tiny mini-pony. He's pictured here. I would be surprised if he measures much taller than three feet.
The apples are quite good, but they're not as perfect and polished-looking as the shiny ones you see at the store. They're much duller and have small dings and things like that. But they're good. They taste just like the air smells near the trees, just a little sweet and like fall.
