The Apple Farm - Chilliwack 
by Mom

 
Activity:  The Apple Farm in the Chilliwack area has dwarf trees that yield 25 varieties of apples.  You can wander through the orchard, or take a guided tour. 

We haven't visited The Apple Farm yet, but plan to soon since our family loves apples.

Here's a great review passed on to us from Mrs. Hunter:
 

Since you have not had the opportunity to visit the Apple Farm, here are some highlights from our recent visit.
 
I went to The Apple Farm with my son's school group last week (Sept. 21) and was very impressed!  The tour ($5 child $4 adult) was great!  The farmer took us around the orchard on the "Orchard Express".  The kids loved bouncing and going around the corners.  We learned SO much about apples and even got to sample one right from the tree!  Back at the main building, we were shown how the apples are sorted and stored.  The kids really enjoyed checking out the pie freezer, the cooler, and guessing how long it would take our tour guide to peel, core, and slice an apple.  When we got to the store, we were greeted by the intoxicating aroma of freshly baked apple pie.  The adults were treated to samples of hot apple cider, while the kids checked out the children's play area.  The children made their way outside to the playground/picnic area while the parents finished shopping. Our group cleaned them out of freshly baked apple pies!  To top off the trip, each child was given a "loot bag" of fresh apples to take home.  We spent about 90 minutes at the farm.  The children had a great time, but I think the adults had as much fun as the kids!  This destination was definitely a winner in my books!
 
Some things to note:
 
  • The store does not accept debit or credit cards 
  • There is a bank machine in Yarrow, about 3 min. from the farm. 
  • Port-a-potties are located throughout the orchard 
  • A very child-friendly environment 
  • Picnic area has one large picnic table, benches, a gazebo with small table and chairs, plus lawn chairs. 
  • Tours are available year round, but must be pre-booked.
