Prior to Hurricane Fiona, we harvested all the pears from the trees. Only pre-picked bags of organic Bosc pears are available at the farm now. Thank you to everyone who supported our pear U-Pick this year!

DUE TO SPRING FROST, OUR FARM IS WITHOUT A CROP. THIS SEASON, THE U-PICK IS CLOSED AND WE WILL NOT BE AT THE HALIFAX BREWERY MARKET.

This weekend for conventional picking we have McIntosh, Cortland, Spartan, and Russet apple varieties. For organic varieties we have Bosc pears, and Spartan, Cortland and Honeycrisp apples. The Honeycrip are offered at a premium price for $1.50/lb!!
U-Pick Open & we’re back at the market!
We have had a very bountiful season with lots of fruit available. Brian will be returning on Saturday to the historic Farmer’s Market at the Brewery located at 1496 Water Street in Halifax. There will be freshly picked organic apples, plums, and pears along with a selection of vinegars and frozen apple cider. Fresh cider coming soon! The U-Pick at the farm is open now!
Harvest this year started earlier than usual and with a light crop in general the apples are nearly all off the trees now. The apple stand at the farm will remain open for another week with lots of picked apples and pears along with assorted vinegars and cider to choose from. Our popular apple pear cider will be available for a limited time. Don’t forget we are at the Brewery Market in Halifax every Saturday morning as well!
