Fall is here and with it comes the apple-and pumpkin-picking season. Plenty of people like to pick their own fruit, and the fall season is the best time to do so with the crisp weather and changing leaves. Grab a cup of warm cider (and maybe a fresh apple doughnut) and bring the family to one of these fantastic farms around Rhode Island.
