Head to Apple Creek Orchards, north of Bellingham, to pick popular Jonagolds, a cross between Golden Delicious and the blush-crimson Jonathan apples that are perfect for both baking and snacking (but not for storing). This family farm also offers other fruits, vegetables, eggs and honey. Once you've filled your baskets, visit with the farm animals. Apple Creek has chickens, geese, ducks and guinea hens walking about to the delight of apple-picking children.
Get pickin': Most of the trees here are Jonagolds. The farm is typically open for picking in October; but will not open for 2020 (see note above). You can eat as many apples as you want while you are picking and any that your children can get in their pockets are free. Find the orchard on Facebook.
