The 2020 pick-your-own apple season has been anything but typical, and thanks to the overwhelming support from our community, our orchard is nearly picked out. Apple picking will continue until end of day Friday, October 23 with a few late season favourites like Russet, Empire, Idared and Ambrosia still available. Our market will remain open this Saturday and Sunday and visitors are welcome to purchase pre-picked apples, pumpkins, honey and other market goodies. As of Monday, October 26, the farm will be closed for the season.
Thank you to all of our guests (returning and first-timers!) who made it out to the orchard this fall. From all of us at Nature's Bounty, we wish you a safe and healthy winter and hope to see you all back here next September.
It's a time-honoured Thanksgiving tradition for so many families; a visit to a local orchard for apple picking, hot cider and soaking in the vibrant colours of autumn. Even if things are a little different than in the past, we hope to be a part of your Thanksgiving celebrations this year.
To ensure the safety of all our guests and staff, pre-booking is required for all visits this weekend so that we can keep our guest count low and provide ample space for everyone. If you plan on visiting Nature's Bounty this Thanksgiving, please book ahead to avoid disappointment.
We will have the largest selection of apple varieties of the season with all but a few available.
The cool fall weather has really set in now and the maple trees ablaze with bright hues of orange, red and yellow. You will certainly enjoy your drive through the countryside this weekend. As our early season apples finish up, our visitors will now enjoy a wide array of choices in the orchard. Late September and early October see the maturation of nearly ten varieties, with more still to come, just in time for Thanksgiving.
