Apple picking… an organic experience

When September comes around here in Wisconsin, I start to get the itch for fall like activities, such as Apple Picking. But I have to say, every year when I think of going apple picking, I often change my mind. And here is what I mean with that.

I don’t buy conventional apples from the grocery store. I choose to buy organic apples.

Why? Well, because the amount of pesticides on an apple and the chemicals used to make them, I will not consume nor put in my body. So for me to go apple picking and buy apples that may cause more harm then good, I just decide to not go. And for those who decide to go Apple Picking for non-organic apples, there is no shame in doing that. But this is an example of myself, walking the talk, each and every day.

As a Wellness Warrior, it’s often very rare I take that hat off. I use to get very upset with myself for not taking it off until I came to finally realize, more then ever, that this is the truth of who I am. I am a Wellness Warrior that walks the talk. So if I tell my clients to incorporate, change or do something, I am doing it for myself and my family as well.

This year I came across Peck and Bushel, Organic Fruit Co. in Colgate, Wisconsin. I loved it! And so did my husband and son. I appreciate being able to walk along the organic apple trees and allow my son to eat the apples off the ground (not the rotten ones). I appreciate the hard work and dedication this family owned business does so that people, like myself, can still have fun, enjoy the fall rituals, without having to drop down to something I don’t believe in consuming or doing.

I invite you to check out Peck and Bushel. Whether you choose to eat Organic or not, this place is a must see. It’s charming barn is full of decor, samples and gifts for everyone, including one for yourself. A beautiful patio starts the outdoor adventures that leads you to the apple trees with spots to stop along the way for photos.

Get out outside and soak of the beautiful fall weather with friends and family!
