We have a miniscule crop of Sandow apples this year so the u-pick is closed for 2020. This is the lowest yield ever in our 10 years of ownership. We have attributed the loss to late frosts, drought and the biennial nature of the Sandow apple variety.

We will be OPEN for U-Pick apple customers starting Saturday, September 28th and will close at the end of day on Monday, October 14th.  We will be open 7 days a week, 11am to dusk, whatever the weather.  We will post when we are closed for the season.  We’ve had six years as a certified organic orchard. Due to the rising costs of certification, this year we are operating as a spray-free orchard with delicious & nutritious Sandow apples. All our wholistic practices as organic orchardists remain the same but we haven’t applied for certification.

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:

Garlic
100% beeswax candles
Rhubarb jelly
We do have a limited apple crop and anticipate being open for a shorter season this year.

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?

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.
