Fresh Picked Apple Desserts

Today is Goat Yoga Saturday at the farm and I've baked up some delicious yummies form our apple picking trip to North Carolina last weekend. I'm also creating an apple dipping bar, which I'm sure I'll be sharing on social media. I'm so excited to serve all things apple as we come into the first weekend of fall on the farm. Here's to hoping for some cooler weather and maybe even some rain!
