We specialize in apples of 27 current different varieties, all grown in the accredited, environmentally friendly method that creates our Eco-Appleā¢. We also grow several varieties of pears and several varieties of plums. All of which are grown and nurtured to their ultimate ripeness and flavour.
During harvest season, there's a new variety ready to go to market every week or 10 days! Ask for samples when visiting our U-Pick or our two Fruit Markets as you never know what your new favourite variety might be.
