apple/pumpkin picking vaud/valais

just as the title says- looking for somewhere to bring the little ones apple or pumpkin picking- found a few places near geneva but that is too far- wondering if anyone knows of any place close to lausanne, montreux?

thanks!

Re: apple/pumpkin picking vaud/valais

Just west of IKEA at Aubonne are some large apple orchards, but I don't think you will find any "Pick your own" orchards here. The farmers usually employ gangs of seasonal workers from eastern Europe, they cannot be bothered with individuals. If I see any "Pick your own pumpkins" I will let you know. There are sometimes fields near the Autobahn exit at Murten-Morat, but I have not seen any yet this season, maybe in four weeks time.

Re: apple/pumpkin picking vaud/valais

There is an organization that posts places where you can pick stuff for free. No apples or pumpkins near Montreux or Lausanne, sorry, but maybe still useful: http://mundraub.org/map

I have seen that there are walnuts in your area, though...

Nyon area but right next to the highway - so easy reach from either Geneva or Lausanne ..
