Apple Harvest Celebrated at Davison Orchards
All the hard work of caring for thousands of Davison Orchards apple trees is coming to fruition now.
September is by far the busiest time of year at Davison Orchards while the apple harvest takes place. Over 20 varieties are apples will be available throughout the season from August to October with tens of thousands of pounds of quality hand-picked apples available to the public, and even more reserved for in-house production of cold pressed apple juice, preserves, and apple pie filling.
“We are open to the public daily and we are harvesting the majority of our apples in September. This is the time of year where we work the hardest, to ensure we pick, juice, bake, and sell our apples when they are fresh off the tree. Even our apple fundraising program provides boxes of apples for school groups within two weeks of picking. And when the apples are ready, there is no slowing down until there is frost in the ground.” – Tom Davison, farmer and owner.
Visitors are invited to come to the farm on weekends (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays) to experience the Apple Harvest Festival which includes u-pick apples, orchard tours, free apple tastings, apple cider donuts, apple pie, caramel apples and of course, Davison Orchard’s famous cold pressed apple juice.
“The weather is usually fantastic in September and it makes for a great outdoor experience with farm-fresh and local food, beautiful fall displays, and a unique Okanagan experience. Bring the whole family for the day and enjoy the Farmhouse Café, produce market and gift shop, children’s playground, and everything apple!”
