Well it was an extended season due to our large crop but our u-pick is finally closed! Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the apples and the view; it was definitely a great season. If you haven’t had your apple fix then our outlet is still open with Honey Crisp, Spartan, Empire, Ambrosia, and Cortland. We also have a lot of feed apples available (50lb bag for $10) by calling or texting Chuck at 474-3301.

 

Thanks again everyone and please check back as we will be updating the website and Facebook every once and a while to give you a sneak peek as to how our orchard works in the off season.

Our season is coming to a close but we will be open this weekend with lots of Cortland, Empire, and Spartan as well as some Honey Crisp and limited Macs. As always we are cash only.

 

The picture is of our Empire apple trees which is a new variety to a lot of people. It originates from New York state and is a mix between MacIntosh and Red Delicious. It has a sweet – tart like taste which makes it my favourite. Come out for a beautiful fall weekend and give them a try!

Why spend all day in school when you can be outdoors?

A group of kindergarten and Grade 1 students from Connaught Street School in Fredericton was given the opportunity to drop their books, get on the bus and pick some apples.

Wyn Everett works at Everett Family Orchard, where the children ventured. She said she often receives groups of children at the orchard in the autumn. Not only is it a bonus to the orchard, she said the children learn something.

 

“We love having the children here. It teaches them that apples grow on trees and not at the grocery store. It helps them to see agriculture at its finest,” said Everett.

Everett is not alone in thinking the orchard has educational value. The students’ teacher Jackie Spin agrees.

“It’s important to kind of get in touch with our local farmers … learn about good nutrition,” said Spin.

The young apple pickers aren’t likely to need apples for a while judging by the size of their hauls and the difficulty missing baby teeth present when eating them.
