Amina Rizwan

Fruit picking/harvesting is a seasonal journey that usually occurs around the time of harvest. Farms that grow fruit will sometimes be open to the public, allowing people to pick their own fruit.

Ontario is the largest apple producer in Canada, followed by British Columbia, then Quebec. Apple picking serves as a great activity for any age group, especially kids. This activity is great if you want to spend some quality time with your family or even for a date night!

The best time to go apple picking is September to early October.

Some farms/orchards don’t just have apple picking as an activity, sometimes, they’ll have a petting zoo, a gift shop, hayrides, and many more.

Once you’re done picking your apples, you can make delicious apple desserts such as apple pie or apple butter.


Fun Fact: There are enough apples in Canada for each person to consume approximately 100 apples every day!

#1000towns will help you and your family find the perfect place to pick some delicious apples!
