Yep, we're growing that many different types of apples. It's an incredible collection of classic heirloom and wonderful connoisseur varieties. And almost none are what you'll find filling the bins of most grocery stores. Read more
Rooms With a View
Salt Spring Island is an idyllic place to visit. And where better to stay than a room at the B&B @ Salt Spring Apple Company? Perfectly located and open year-round.
We're not short of ideas, that's for sure. So, as the months and years tick by, we're going to be exploring lots of new ideas, whether they be apple varieties we've not tried previously or apple-related products we'd like to offer.
With 359 trees planted in our orchard, another 1,000 in pots awaiting planting in the main orchard and another 1,500-plus being grafted this spring, we're busy these days.
We'll graft again in summer 2013 and hope to have our full orchard planted during the winter of 2013/2014.
Then we will graft trees to replace any lost in our orchard and for sale to the growing number of folks who want to grow their own heritage and connoisseur apples.
While fresh apples will always be our number one priority and we're happy to also meet the demand for heritage and connoisseur apple trees for home growing, we're also exploring our options for adding value to our harvest and producing products we can sell year-round. Stay tuned for news on what we're doing in the value-added department.
