Welcome to Breden's Orchard in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. Owned by the Breden family. They were always so sweet to us each year as we would go to pick our apples. They have the option to pick your fruit or buy it in their little store.
We liked to pick our apples. You have to be on your best behavior there because the fruit is fragile so we used our manners as we walked the isles of trees laden with apples.

Brianna and I liked the sweet Golden Delicious apples and daddy loved the Granny Smith apples.
This was always part of our fall tradition each year. Then we would put the apples in a zipper bag and put them in the bottom of the fridge with one wet apple. Doing this they would last all winter long.

Some of the apples we would take home and can too. Apple sauce, apple pie filling, apples and cinnamon sticks canned in apple juice and cranberry apple sauce. Such tasty treats!
I will never forget how much fun we had. There is nothing like picking apples in the warm sun with your family.

Actually, we even brought home two puppies from there once.
I have so many wonderful memories from this place- and the pies are delicious!
Over the years, they have had to put a no children allowed into the peach orchard because they were destroying the trees. They do allow everyone to pick apples but request that you call ahead so they can best accommodate you.
