An apple a day keeps the doctor away, says the old adage. Get more than your daily dose at any one of these bountiful farms:
Chudleigh’s Farm has been a favourite with families since it opened in 1957. McIntosh, Spartan, Gala, Cortland, Empire… take your pick. And don’t leave without Chudleigh’s famous apple pie, apple butter and apple chips. www.chudleighs.com
Whittamore's in north Whitby also makes good baked goods. Beyond an abundance of apples, you can also pick up pumpkins too. www.whittamoresfarm.com
After all that apple-picking you’ll want to sit back and crunch on a few at Waddell’s, a scenic orchard by the Rideau Canal. www.waddellapples.com
Pick from a small but delicious selection at Applewood Farm and Winery and make sure to try the tasty apple wines. www.applewoodfarmwinery.com
Pine Farms Orchard is another good’un. Their website handily makes suggestions for each apple variety—Melba, excellent for apple sauce. www.pinefarmsorchard.com
