The apple harvest is happening in orchards up and down the valley and Davison Orchards is celebrating September with all things apple!

Saturday is the kick-off day for the Apple Harvest Festival, held every September weekend at Davison Orchards in Vernon. Take a tour out to the orchard and pick your own to take home and enjoy. The kids can learn to make a mini apple pie with Nana Davison, every Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m.

Sample apples picked fresh from the farm and choose your favourite from the many different varieties. Caramel apples, apple cider doughnuts, fresh baked pies, apple cider sausages and free samples of fresh pressed apple juice are all available for a tasty harvest treat. Apart from the many apple treats to enjoy, you can let the kids run wild in the huge farm-themed Crazy Cow Kids Corral playground or visit the farm animals in their new barn.

The farm is also celebrating Canada’s special birthday with an iconic Canadians pumpkin people display. Come check it out, learn some interesting trivia and take some great harvest photos!

Davison Orchards is at 3111 Davison Rd.
