SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Beak & Skiff is named number three in the United States for best apple orchards, USA Today says.

The orchard also has Pick-Your-Own apples at the Apple Barn, live music concerts, and even a hang-out for kids at the Kids Treehouse.
Some of their apples include Gala, McIntosh, Ginger Gold, and Paula Red.
The orchard is open daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Pick-Your-Own is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
