Apple U-Pick

Autumn becomes particularly delicious with the traditional ritual of bringing in the apple harvest.  We hope you choose Sandow Farm for your apple-picking traditions.  Here is some useful information to assist you with your harvest:

 

Apple U-Pick at our orchard is the highlight of our harvest season!

How it Works:

In 2021 we will open on Saturday, September 25th. We remain open for two weeks only, closing end of day on Monday, October 11th.

7 days a week, 11am-dusk and whatever the weather. 

We provide you with two pre-purchased bags options.

Cost:

$15 for 1 peck (10lbs)

$30 for half bushel (20lbs)

You are welcome to bring your own bags. The apples are $1.50/lb. Cash only please. 

Please note that for health and safety reasons, animals are not allowed at the orchard.

Roadside Stand

We operate a roadside stand that opens in early September each year with bagged apples, jelly, honey and garlic for sale. 7 days a week, 11am-dusk and whatever the weather.

The stem of a ripe apple will break cleanly when the bottom (calyx) end is tipped upward toward the spur from which it hangs. Gently place the apple in your bag.  Dropping or throwing your apple could bruise it! 

  • Keep apples in a cold but above freezing area, such as a fridge or garage.
  • Cover loosely in order to hold in moisture.  Apples like high humidity.
  • Apples produce ethylene, which will ripen the fruit, so allow the apples to breathe.
  • Follow these tips and your apples will last for several months!

The nutritional profile of a good apple matters as much as the life-preserving constituents found primarily in the skin of our favourite tree fruit.

  • Organic crops on average have significantly higher levels than conventional crops of all 29 nutrients analyzed.
  • Apples are a good source of vitamin A, C, thiamine, and riboflavin. The skin of an apple is the best part.
  • Almost half of the vitamin C is found just under the skin.
  • Apples are high in potassium and low in sodium, and even contain small amounts of calcium, phosphorus and iron.
  • An excellent source of antioxidants. Studies show that organic crops have significantly higher levels of antioxidants.
  • Almost 85% of an apple is naturally filtered water.
