Það sem verður gert

The tour will have distinct stops, all within the crabapple orchard.

A brief history of crabapples as well as how Glen and Alex started growing their orchard.

Enter the orchard and learn about what a rootstock is, how the different rootstocks being tested and how a rootstock affects the growth and maturation of a fruit tree.

Learn about the symbiotic relationship between other local growers and crabapples. Special focus is placed on how the orchard is maintained without the use of pesticides or herbicides.

Next up is learning about pruning fruit trees. What works, what we are testing and why anybody does it. In this section, we will also be including demonstrations of different pests, bacterial or viral infections that can damage fruit trees.

Finally take a look at the espalier style of growing, the only one in the world dedicated to crabapple trees.

This concludes the tour, guests will be provided with an assortment of local snacks, as well as a complimentary crabapple product to take home.

Appleflats is the only commercial crabapple focused orchard in North America. Hosts Glen and Alex discovered that this heritage variety of Canadian Crabapple is disappearing off the continent and have crafted their business around preserving it and commercializing it for other future growers. See agricultural research in progress and learn what it takes to bring a new fruit from obscurity to thousands of tables a month.

Alex and Glen are probably the only people in North America that can tie the agriculture, the business and biodiversity into the same package.

We really enjoyed our tour of the crabapple farm. Glen was very welcoming and informative about his experiences with their farm. We really enjoyed hearing about his knowledge and the information about the process of his business. The gardens were beautiful and had some of his mother’s sculptures throughout. I loved the family story and history of the farm. We enjoyed tasting the crabapple jelly and juice mixers. We are looking forward to seeing their products spread all across Canada and the US.
