Halloween #TBT: The Tuckernuck Team in Costume

In honor of Halloween (and the fact that it's a Thursday), the Tuckernuck team is throwing it back to our trick-or-treating days. For all of you who played our who's who game on Instagram...the results are in!

Team Outing: The Gold Cup

There's almost no better way to celebrate fall than at a tailgate.  The Tuckernuck team set up shop at the 76th annual International Gold Cup steeplechase in Virginia and spent the day enjoying mimosas, cider, foliage, and friends while watching the races.
Apple cider spiked with Sophie's favorite island rum, Cruzan Dark, topped off with cinnamon sticks was the perfect addition to our cozy tailgate attire.

Maddy's Trip to Germany

There’s no better time to visit Germany than the Fall. Yes, it is true that Munich celebrates its famous Oktoberfest for 16 days starting in September and ending the first weekend in October. Liters of delicious German beer, soft pretzels, blondes in Dimdl’s and live music are hard to resist. But, it’s also true that there is more to Germany than Oktoberfest in Fall.

Maddy, our co-founder got to experience both the world-renowned Bavarian festival and the crisp air and orange leaves at the foot of the German Alps in a small ski town called Garmisch-Partenkirchen at the Eibsee Hotel. Here are some pictures from her special trip, where she reconnected with her German roots (Jocelyn and Maddy’s grandma is German and their Dad lived in Garmisch for 4 years).

Maddy and Paul stayed at an all-wooden hotel at the foot of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain and a few miles from Garmisch-Partenkirchen where the 1936 Winter Olympics were held.
This famous castle was built as an ode to the composer Richard Wagner’s work and served as inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty castle.
A view of King Ludwig II's palace and gorgeous gardens.
Munich! Oktoberfest with Toby, Maddy’s brother, and his buddies who met up with Maddy after running the Berlin Marathon the week prior and rewarded themselves in the Spatenbrau tent.
Farewell to Germany and a big Thank You to Maddy’s family friends who showed her the German way to an authentic Oktoberfest experience. PROST! 
When she wasn't in her dirndl, Maddy was showing off some of our favorite fall items.  Click here to see the Tuckernuck clothing that Maddy packed for the trip!

#Tuckernucking: Let's go Apple Picking

We've mentioned that back-to-school nostalgia that sets in like clockwork after Labor Day, a reminder that we've said goodbye to certain fall rituals (no more new trapper keepers, shopping sprees at Gap Kids, or freshly decorated classrooms...sigh) -- but there are a few fall traditions that hold up better than the first day of school jitters.  For us, apple picking happens to fall at the very top of that list.

We decided to map out some of our favorite orchards along the East Coast--places we discovered while at college in Vermont, Virginia, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Pennsylvania, growing up outside of Boston or in DC, and on family leaf peeping trips around New England. Find whichever one is closest to you, break out your Barbour and new boots, and spend an afternoon climbing trees and drinking cider.   You might not be packing the apples in your new lunch box or placing them on your homeroom teacher's desk on Monday morning, but you can spend Sunday afternoon baking pie and watching football, which is really almost just as good.  Oh, and don't forget to send us your #Tuckernucking photos of it all.

Virginia:  Carter Mountain Orchard was a regular target for Caroline and her friends while at college in Virginia.  Just over two hours outside of DC and nestled in the countryside near Charlottesville, a visit to this orchard can also make for solid day-long country escape for those of us in the Capital.

Maryland: Homestead Farm is a forty-five minute drive from DC and an even shorter trip from Emily's hometown in Maryland, making it her go-to orchard growing up.

Pennsylvania: Brecknock Orchard in Pennsylvania is just an hour away from September, Maddy, and Sophie's alma mater, making it one of their favorite escapes during college.

Connecticut: Belltown Hill Orchards is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Emily's alma matter in the countryside of Connecticut. 

Rhode Island: Dame Farm and Orchards in Rhode Island was a favorite escape for Jocelyn during her days as a student in Providence.

Massachusetts: Bolton Orchards, just about an hour north of Boston, was a regular (and favorite) field trip destination for Molly as a kid.

New York: For those who need an ironic escape from the Big Apple, head to Greig Farm in Red Hook, NY.  Since it's a two hour drive north of the city, make a day of it and enjoy lunch in nearby Hudson or Rhinebeck, both known for farm-to-table fare and antiquing.

Vermont: Happy Valley Orchard, just a five minute drive from Middlebury College, was an easy and favorite destination for Molly and her friends during college.

New Hampshire: Emily has fall memories of leaf-peeping at Apple Crest Farm in New Hampshire, one of her favorite spots for apple picking.
