Tyler's Rocky Point Orchard

Located in the heart of Emmett, Idaho just near the base of the Rocky Point lies one of the best apple orchards in the potato state - Tyler's Rocky Point Orchard. Today, I had the pleasure of visiting this orchard and I must say that I was modestly impressed with it. 

Offering an extensive variety of apples such as pink lady, golden delicious, rome, jonagold, red delicious, granny smith, and even Fuji, this prehistoric yet picturesque orchard proves why it is one of the best to exist here in the potato state. Tyler's Rocky Point Orchard also seems to accommodate groups of all sizes, allowing you to pick your own fruit for a long-lasting, memory-breeding experience. 

Additionally this orchard offers cherries, plums, and apricots too. Today is the 24th, so I didn't expect to see any of these as they were probably out of season or simply picked over. But needless to say the apple selection was relatively generous compared to some of the other orchards in the area. 

I love any kind of experience that brings joy into my life. I think those of you reading also love the same that same kind of experience. The concept of picking your own food is just generally fascinating, as it always has been. Especially when that food is organic and straight from the root. Nothing is better for the human body than clean, organic food. 

And although the 45-minute scenic drive to downtown Boise is one to appreciate, I think the smell of apples manifesting through the air is truly so much better than that. Not to mention the adorable horses in the pasture nearby anxiously awaiting for you to stop and offer them an apple. 

If you live in Idaho and haven't been to this orchard, you truly need to go.  Only $12 for (1) five-gallon bucket. If that isn't a deal, I don't know what is. And they are some of the greatest apples ever. I think I want to go back again in the near future and I also recommend that you do too.
