Here at Homestead Orchards we grow our strawberries a bit differently. Our ever-bearing (day neutral) Albion and Seascape strawberries are planted yearly in our high tunnels in raised beds for easy picking. Our quantities may be limited from time to time during the season, but they are available from July through to October (depending on weather). Strawberries are also available already picked in our store.
We also are now growing field (or ground) berries as well. These will be available in June and in larger quantities than our tunnel berries
We grow approximately one acre of asparagus on our farm. It is fresh picked by us daily, and is typically available starting mid-May.
In Addition to Apples, we offer other fresh products grown right on our farm in season:
Fresh Apple Cider
Pumpkins and Squash
Our raspberries are available mid July for you to pick, or already picked in store.
Our pumpkin patch offers a variety of different kinds of pumpkins for you to choose from. We also have pre-picked pumpkins and squash available in our store in season.
Fresh apple cider is pressed weekly in season here at the farm from our handpicked apples. Though most of our cider is fresh and unpasteurized, we also have a pasteurized option available.
Our corn is available in August and early September. We grow yellow and bi-colour varieties, picked fresh daily for you
Thornloe Cheese is owned by farmers, and located in Northern Ontario. We are happy to stock cheese curds, cheddar, brie and other varieties of Thornloe cheese
