Where is the best place in the GTA to get the best apple picking experience? (Include Peel, Durham, York Regions)

Cider, wagons, pies, etc...

  1. If you want the wagons and pie too, then Chudleigh's is your place. It on Halton 25 just north of Milton. I am told they're really good pies too.
    9528 HWY. 25, Milton, Ontario, L9T 4N9
    Phone: (905) 878-2725

    They get busy though. They do school groups. And its a bit far.


    I prefer Devlin's Orchard on Warden. I think its between Bloomington and Aurora Rds. It might be between Aurora and Davis. They don't have a wagon (or at least didn't last I was there -- 3/4 years ago). I don't remember pies -- but, I'm not a pie fan so what would I know. They do crush their own cider.

    I prefer it because it is quiter and because the orchard is somewhat hemmed in by trees and is secluded and quiet. Chudleigh's was always so communal and festive and busy. Devlin's is little bit of quitude and sanctuary -- an escape from the city.

    1. I'm partial to Ferri's on Heritage Rd. north of Steeles in Brampton. Nice selection, fair prices, no surprises. Good cider, too. Visit them this year since there's a subdivision slated for the orchard areas, alas.Mavis exit on the 401 is the closest connection.

      1. Go to Algoma Apple Orchards in Whitby. You can pick many different varieties and you can even have a tour of the packing facility (much more interesting than you would think). Good bake shop and lots of fun things for kids to do.

        1. Here's a link to Today's Parent Toronto - they have a "farms" listing in their family fun section with lots of pick your own options.

          1. thanks for your replies everyone!

            I was partial to Chudleigh, but they charge for entrance ($6/person)I believe. Do the other ones charge entrance as well?

            Does anyone know which farm have mutsu/crispin and northern spies?

              I went to Chudleigh's a couple of weeks ago on a Tuesday morning (when it was verry quiet).They waved me through without paying the entrance fee.
