Apple Orchards around Kingston, Ontario

I spent many of my tween and teen years at our family apple orchard in Colborne, Ontario, so fall is one of my favourite seasons! Fresh apples abound in southern Ontario. If you need a little fresh air, you can pick up or pick-your-own apples at a number of local apple orchards.


If you opt for pick-your-own, in order to preserve the tree, my tip to you is: “eye to the sky“. The eye of the apple is the centre of the bottom. Just cup your hand around the apple (gently – some apples like McIntosh tend to bruise easily) and turn the eye to the sky. The apple should come off without the accompanying leaves and portions of the branch that it is on.

If you are in the Northumberland County, ON area: The orchard my family started, named after my jazz-loving father (Pieter) with a nod to Canadian jazz vibraphone player Peter Appleyard, is still open in Colborne: Pieter’s Appleyard. A couple of years after he named the orchard, my dad introduced himself to Peter Appleyard at one of his concerts and they hit it off and remained good friends until they both passed in 2013.
