Featured in Chatelaine Magazine as one of the top four orchards in Canada, Albion Orchards has several varieties of apples available for picking in late summer and fall.
Albion Orchards grows many different apple varieties native to Ontario and although there’s usually one or more species ready at any given time, we cannot guarantee harvest times or quantities; the crops vary from year to year as Mother Nature likes to keep farmers guessing.

Apple picking tips: Gently twist the apple. Do not squeeze or drop the fruit as apples may bruise. Bruised fruit doesn’t keep as well. Keep turning until the fruit comes free in your hand. Don’t pull. Be careful as you turn the fruit like a doorknob – you want the stem to detach at the tree branch and not take any of the tree with it. If you pull the apples you can damage the branch that it grows on, and prevent new apples from growing in that spot next year. Also, pulling on the apples causes more fruit from the top of the tree to fall off, leaving more apples on the ground.
The trees here range in age from two years old to forty years old. Come enjoy the fall colors and fall flavors in Caledon !
