Along with family fun, Royal Oak offers home-grown meal
Fall is my favorite season. The time of year that forces us to appreciate every remaining transcendent moment. It’s like nature’s encore.
We are very blessed to have ample orchards, fruit stands and fall markets surrounding us in McHenry County, so take advantage of the season and enjoy all the season has to offer. I did that recently at Royal Oak Farm Orchard in Harvard and sampled more than just apples. This beautiful farm sits on 120 rolling acres and has been family-run since 1992.
When we don’t have the kiddos, my wife and I skip the apple picking and go right to the eating. Well, at least I do. A recent trip sans kids to Royal Oak Farm on a beautiful fall-like day presented a surprising cornucopia of culinary thrills.
