Dr. Carey Watt delivered a public lecture on Thursday, October 4, 2018 titled “The Strongman and the Apple: a local and global history of the Sandow apple and Sandow Farm in Keswick Ridge, N.B. since 1886″.

Watt’s talk explored questions like could the Sandow apple grown at Sandow Farm in Keswick Ridge, N.B. have a bigger national and global backstory? How did the apple get its name? Could it be connected to the world-famous strongman Eugen Sandow (1867-1925)? If so, why?

Thank you so much for supporting Sandow Farm this year!

Thanks to everyone who made the journey to our organic u-pick. It is always a treat to see how many people are dedicated to purchasing organic produce and don’t mind a trip down the country roads to get the DIY picking experience.

Our U-PICK closed for the season on Tuesday, October 9th.

We will be OPEN for U-Pick apple customers starting Saturday, September 29th.  We will be open 7 days a week, 11am to dusk, whatever the weather.  We will post when we are closed for the season.  This is our sixth season as certified organic. We have a couple different picking options available: we are providing drawstring bags in 2 sizes. The smaller size costs $15 and the larger bag costs $30 to fill. Customers are also welcome to bring their own bags. The apples are $1.50/pound. Cash only please.

We also have the following items for sale at our farm stand:

  • Organic garlic
  • 100% beeswax candles
  • Pear and apple jam made with organic fruit

We do have a limited apple crop and anticipate being open for a shorter season this year.

Thanks to everyone who visited Sandow Farm in 2017. We had a record harvest at our u-pick and met lots of new customers. We are delighted to see how many people value organic apples.

On Nov. 2 volunteer gleaners came to pick end-of-season apples at Sandow Farm. Rogers TV filmed Phil Chaplin as well as coordinators with the Community Inclusion Network. The apples picked were divided between Sandow Farm, the volunteer apple pickers and local food banks and schools.
