Fruit We Grow

Heritage apple day.  Just a few varieties!
Heritage apple day. Just a few varieties!

We grow over 60 varieties of apples as well as pear and plum trees. We grow heritage and unusual varieties in order to preserve them. Plus, they taste better than some of the new varieties grown more for size, colour and storage and travel ability than taste!

We have apples in the store until we close in December. We’ve listed the varieties we grow starting with the earliest fruit picked in August and ending with those picked in October. Not all trees have apples every year and many things can affect both the size of the crop and the apples.
