When I came here, we just missed the opportunity to pick apples from their orchard. I’ve always wanted to walk in an orchard to pick apples from the trees. It’s ok, they still had apple tastings in their shop so you can try the different types.

They had their cold pressed juice to sample as well as caramel and their different apples.

A few kinds of apples they had are:

  • Ambrosia
  • Arlet
  • Aurora
  • Golden Delicious
  • Granny Smith
  • Honeycrisp
  • Jonagold
  • MacIntosh
  • Mutsu
  • Spartan

Hands down, my favourite is the Honeycrisp for it’s crunchy and sweet taste.

There’s still lots of apples to be bought in the store. No shortage of them either.

They also had a bunch of different squash for sale. Great for the fall season.

Their shop also has pies. Some may say they have the best pies in Vernon. We weren’t hungry when we arrived at the village since we just finished brunch.

We decided to grab some of their fresh cold-pressed apple juice. Man, it was really good! I can’t drink regular apple juice anymore. If you come here, you must grab a bottle…or even a jug of their apple juice. It’s amazing.

As it’s nearing halloween, they have tons of pumpkins for sale. They even had enough to build as castle. It’s fun for the kids to play inside the pumpkin castle and pose with the pumpkin king and his knights.

davidson-orchards-band

They also have a pumpkin band too. One of them is Anna from Frozen.

For the Pumpkin Festival in October, they do pumpkin tours and family pumpkin picking experiences.

The Crazy Cow Kids Corral is 1 acre of play area for little kids. Adults can play too…no shame.

davidson-orchards-donkey

They also have a handful of farm animals. We saw this cute donkey and it reminded us of the movie Shrek.

davidson-orchards-goat

They had a lot of goats around.

Auntie May’s Deep Dish Café is located in the original farm house at Davison Orchards. It’s a bustling cafe offering everything from coffee, to healthy homemade lunches, and of course their famous pies by the slice. Many item are grown or prepared at the orchard.
