Organic JonaGold Apples

We have around 800 apple trees, mostly JonaGold, with a few Spartan and McIntosh, harvested in September.   JonaGold apples are a cross between Golden Delicious and blush-crimson Jonathan.  Large, sweet and crisp, a delicious eating apple.

Organic Apple Juice

We also sell our organic Apple Juice in 5L boxes.   No added sugar, preservatives or any other ingredients, juiced right on our farm, tangy, sweet and delicious.


CHERRIES:

Organic Sweetheart Cherries

We sell three varieties of organic cherries, available in July and August:  Rainier (blush), Skeena (red) and Sweethearts (red).   Our cherries are as large as toonies.

Rainier cherries are candy sweet and delicate with a yellow colour and red blush. We have 475 Rainier cherry trees on our farm.

Skeena cherries are a dark red to almost black variety with a lovely dense, firm texture and a well-balanced sweet-sharp flavour.  We have 936 Skeena cherry trees, ranging in age from 15 to 25 years old, some of the oldest on the farm.

Sweetheart cherries are a bright red, heart-shaped cherry with a mild, sweet flavour and firm texture. We have 155 Sweetheart cherry trees on our farm, the last of our three varieties to mature.

BLUEBERRIES:

We have several thousand organic blueberry bushes.   Available from early July to late September, we sell two varieties of Blueberries:  Duke and Elliot.   Both large and tangy-sweet varieties, the two blueberries have slightly different delicious flavours.


ASPARAGUS:

Come visit us in May/June, for organic Asparagus.


PUMPKIN & SQUASH:

Organic Long-Pie Pumpkin

In Autumn, we sometimes have Pumpkin and Squash available, including organic Long-Pie Pumpkin.  This heirloom variety, the original pie pumpkin, was nearly lost but for the efforts of a determined seed saver. With smooth, flavourful flesh, almost string-less with few seeds, this pumpkin looks like a large, orange zucchini and is perfect for pie.


WALNUTS:

We also have a walnut tree on the farm, producing organic Walnuts in late Autumn.
