Apple cider donut lovers, now is your season. Hit these seven Westchester County farms, orchards, and more to get your fix this fall.

As temperatures cool and pumpkin patches proliferate, we’ll let you in on a little secret: Cakey, golden-brown apple cider donuts are a hallmark of autumn in the Hudson Valley — possibly even more so than pumpkin or apple picking. (We admit it, we’ve gone “apple picking” just for the fresh cider and hot donuts. Don’t @ us.) Topped with crumbly sugar and fried to perfection, there is nothing more rustic and heartwarming for a Westchesterite in the fall than a piping hot apple cider donut fresh from the farmhouse bakery. Here are our favorite local spots to indulge this fall.

Acorn Farm & Garden Center

470 Mamaroneck Ave, Harrison; 914.698.7846

This outdoor living store sells everything from wood-crafted playhouses to outdoor furniture. On the weekends, its country store sells homemade donuts. The center is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.

Harvest Moon Farm & Orchard

130 Hardscrabble Rd, North Salem; 914.485.1210

Light, richly flavorful, and hot from the oil, these addictive orbs from heaven above are like no other donut here on Earth. The slightly crunchy outer edge is the ace in the hole, requiring no added cinnamon sugar (but you do you) — only the patience to withstand the lines that linger well into winter. Apple cider donuts are served daily at the farm store from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Salinger’s Orchard 

230 Guinea Rd, Brewster; 845.277.3521

This orchard is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. to serve you fresh cider donuts.

Stew Leonard’s

1 Stew Leonard Dr, Yonkers; 914.375.4700

Sweet, cakey, and most akin to a traditional donut (but with that oh-so-appley pop), these beauties won’t reach your lips warm, but they’re readily available in packs throughout the store, and the only line you’ll endure will be at checkout, which runs like a well-oiled machine. Stew Leonard’s is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Stuart’s Fruit Farm

62 Granite Springs Rd, Granite Springs; 914.245.2784

Also sporting a fresh-from-the-oil crispness and warmth, these wheels of autumn wonder work well with a light dusting of cinnamon sugar but also hold their own when devoured plain. Apple cider donuts can be found, and enjoyed, at the bakery daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
