Welcome to friendly Heath Orchard, located in the scenic hills of Dufferin Heights near Stanstead. Pick your own apples in our 16-acre orchard or choose pre-picked from one of the over 25 varieties starting mid-summer. Early heritage apples such as Yellow Transparent are followed by summer favourites like Melba and newer varieties like Sunrise and Paula Red. These, in turn, overlap the fall “keepers” like Cortland, Spartan, and McIntosh. We also have rare specialty apples: Wolf River, Duchess, or Summer Granny.
Heath Orchard apples are graded “Eco-Apples” and are the non-organic apple of choice at several major natural health food stores in Sherbrooke. For over 25 years, we’ve used integrated pest management to control harmful insects with minimal spray, while encouraging beneficial ones. Our apples are not waxed, and are stored by refrigeration – not nitrogen.
Along with our prize-winning apples, we produce fresh-pressed, non-pasteurized apple cider. Local honey from blueberry, clover, and apple blossoms, as well as maple products and vegetables are available. We also feature beautiful, functional pottery by Lynn Heath. Each unique piece is dishwasher, oven, and microwave-safe and great for gifts or everyday use. Lynn’s popular apple motif is a symbol of the orchard and her heritage. The Heath family settled and have farmed this land for over 200 years. Come and celebrate our 3rd century of high quality and low prices. We look forward to meeting you and your family!
Group Tours & Fundraising
