Frequently Asked Farm Questions
- Will apple picking be available when I visit the farm?
Our peak picking season is in September and October, and early apples are ready mid to late August. Due to the nature and availability of our crop, there may not be apples available for picking. There are still plenty of fun filled activities to enjoy at the farm! Experience scenic tractor wagon rides by the Niagara Escarpment and stop by our pumpkin patch, visit our farm animal area and nature trail that features swing ropes. Watch your children enjoy the play area that features four huge slides, a tower and hay bale jumps or enjoy one of our farm kitchen favourites and signature apple blossoms.
