If you're one of those people that hates to see summer go, you may not like the news I am about to tell you.

The COVID-19 pandemic is ruining A LOT of our fun this year, but thankfully it can't take our seasonal donut, cider and apple enjoyment away from us.

I for one, LOVE fall, so seeing announcements like these totally make my day. I can already taste the cider and pasty deliciousness, and I am currently chomping at the bit to put my "Happy Fall Y'all" decorations up.

Let's get back to the good news...Curran's Orchard on Kilburn Road in Rockford is officially opening for the 2020 season this Saturday, August 22nd!!!

If you're worried about COVID precautions this season at Curran's Orchard, I hope you find comfort in the fact that they have plenty of 'well-distanced' picnic tables for your family to sit and enjoy your treats at.

Up until a few weeks ago, Curran's Orchard was hosting 'Market at the Orchard' weekends this Spring, so they are well versed in operating their business with COVID-19 precautions and sanitation practices in place. Just be sure to wear your mask while shopping inside their bakery and store, and you'll be ready to enjoy some delicious Fall fun at the Orchard this year!

FYI, starting August 22, Curran's Orchard will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Get more info, here.
