Apple picking starts soon!
Getting hungry for apples? We hope so!
When are we going to open? That’s the #1 question of the 2018 growing season. The good news is that we have a great crop! And yes, that includes the ever popular Honey Crisp. It’s their “on” year, unlike last year.
We finally got the moisture that we needed. The apples are beginning to size. However, the not so good news is that the maturity/taste just isn’t there yet, thanks to the extreme summer weather. We thought the opposite – that the heat would have advanced maturity. Not so!
We’re evaluating day by day & will post on our web site under Types of Apples & Availability section once we are sure. Well… almost sure. Mother Nature always has the last word.
Come savour the sights, sounds and smells of the apple season!
We invite you to take our Fall Apple Harvest Driving Tour, September 29th & 30th from 10 – 4. Eight great locations to visit along A Country Path.
At Archibald’s, you can pick your favourite apples, taste wines & ciders made right here, let the kids enjoy our “Wine Tank Play Area” & don’t forget about our fries & caramel dumplings. Just up the road is the Tyrone Mill where you can learn how this 172 year old mill operates.
Next stop – Model A Acres – has amazing full size historical replicas including the DeHavilland Mosquito. Check brochure for tour times and cost. Then make your way up to Enniskillen to visit Crystal at Timeless Essentials. She will be talking about fall herb harvesting, essential oils and putting your garden to bed.
Drop into Rosemary Jenkins Pottery to see beautifully crafted nature inspired pottery, as well as handcrafted wood products. Want to learn more about bees? You won’t want to miss a visit with Beekeeper Martin and Queen Bee Petra at 3Beez.buzz.
And who can think about fall without thinking about pumpkins. It’s opening weekend at Knox’s Pumpkin Farm – the perfect place to pick that perfect pumpkin. Last but not least… drop into Geissberger Farmhouse Cider for a taste of the fall harvest – sweet apple ciders and non-alcoholic ciders.
Here’s more information on the sites, as well as a map to get you on this Fun Fall Road Trip! 2018 Fall Apple Harvest Brochure
