Pieter's Appleyard offers the highest quality of apples and other produce on the market today. Initially the farm was planted with apples in 1981 and our family has been continuing the tradition since we took over the operation in 1998. We have made a commitment to excellence, which has earned us the reputation of being a quality grower in the area.

Pieter's Appleyard is a modern operation; we grow mostly dwarf trees that are clearly identified by variety which makes picking an enjoyable activity. The most popular of the 38 apple varieties we grow, have been planted close together allowing you to check out several apples before deciding what to buy. Handy little carts are available to keep your picked apples near you.
While the orchard's layout is done on a modern scale the natural setting of the farm itself has been maintained and offers the visitors an opportunity to take in breathtaking views of Lake Ontario.
The orchard is managed under a strict Integrated Pest Management program. Meticulous, weekly examinations of insects are carried out by scouts. By trying to establish a balance between predatory and damaging insects insecticide spray have been kept to a minimum which in the past has produced fruit which is free from residues expressed in parts per 100 million.
In the past our farm was one of only ten Ontario orchards selected for an advanced IPM program with further experiments to improve insect control. This biointensive treatment has proven to be a very worthwhile experience and has helped us rely even more on the work of beneficial insects than before.
