We grow 20 apple varieties in our mature orchard, located near Renfrew, Ontario, in the Ottawa Valley.
Each year, depending on the weather, different apples varieties are available at different times throughout the growing season. This natural timing allows you to try a number of different apple types over a few months.
In our online shop, we will only post the apple types that are ready to be enjoyed and available for pick-up at the Orchard
If your favourite apple isn’t listed yet, it will be once it is time to harvest this year’s crop.
Come back often in the growing season to find out what is available from the orchard.
