At our U-Pick Apple Farm (which is located approximately a 10-minute drive from Merrickville and the Rideau Canal), you can spend family time picking your own apples (Cortland, McIntosh, Paula Red, Jersey Mac and more), strolling down one of our trails (while walking with your best friend), and socializing with Sox and Noel (our resident horse and donkey), on our 50 acre farm.
In 1979, we started planting our orchard and have been adding trees each year. Today, we have 1500 semi-dwarf trees, which means ladders are not necessary to pick the apples. Jasper Apple Farm was started by Lorna and Bill Bayes after long careers in teaching. They enjoyed the new challenges, experiences and especially their repeat customers, with many becoming friends.
With the poor Spring we had this year, we are sorry to report we will not have apples for sale this fall. On a more positive note we will have the following 6 colours of Mums available: Frosty White, Golden, Pink, Regal Purple, Spicy Orange and Burgundy. Call or email us to reserve your favourite colours so as not to be disappointed.
We hope to reopen our apple orchard in the fall of 2020 with our country fresh apples to pick. We are disappointed to not open for apples on our 40th anniversary this year but that is the nature of our business. All the best and hope to see everyone in the Orchard again next year.
