Apple Blossoms

Apple blossoms are not only a beautiful sight to behold, but they also play a crucial role in the life cycle of an apple tree. These delicate flowers mark the beginning of the apple tree's journey towards producing delicious fruits that we all enjoy. 

Apple blossoms are essential for the pollination process, as they contain both male and female reproductive organs. Bees and other insects visit the blossoms to collect nectar and inadvertently transfer pollen from one flower to another, allowing for fertilization to occur. Without this crucial step, the apple tree would not be able to produce fruit.

The timing of apple blossoms varies depending on the apple tree variety and the climate. In general, apple blossoms start to appear in the spring, typically between April and May. The sight of apple trees covered in blossoms is a sure sign that warmer weather is on the way.

Take a stroll through our orchards for an impromptu photo shoot, or simply relax on our patio with a cider in hand, and let the panoramic views and serene atmosphere provide an escape you didn't know you needed.






Patio Lunches

Every season our patio restaurant is a huge draw for visitors. We are known for our delicious wood-fired pizzas, refreshing craft ciders and beautiful lakeside views. While summer is our busiest season, the best time to visit is definitely in the spring! With our orchard in full bloom, you can enjoy the beauty of our patio without the crowds. We will be open in time for Mother's Day, May 11 & 12 2024. Keep an eye on our socials for the most up to date hours.

Cider Restock

Spring is the season of fresh flavors, and our cider selection is no exception. We've crafted a range of ciders that capture the essence of the season, from crisp and refreshing classic apple to innovative blends infused with ripe fruits and unique essences. Our new Legacy Series Cherry Bourbon cider is a must try, with subtle hints of juicy cherry and a smooth bourbon finish. We sometimes sell out of our most popular ciders during the summer months, so stocking up on your favourites in the spring is always a good idea. Don't forget our ciders make a perfect Mother's Day gift!
