Annual Fruit Tasting Open House - Saturday Oct 15 2022

Note: this is a free event, but please consider supporting our hard working vendors. 

Have you ever wished to sample some of our interesting varieties before buying a tree? Stop in during our annual fruit tasting open house! You can sample various apples and pears and take a self-guided tour of our holistically-managed test orchard.

Date and Time: Saturday, Oct 15th, 2022 here at the nursery, 9:00am-4:00pm

Parking: In the field behind the office; follow the signs at the road to park.

The Tasting: We have been harvesting all sorts of fruits and berries from our orchard all summer and fall! Come on into the white hoop house (in the potted area) and a staff member will help you collect a plate to sample in the big white tasting tent located to the south of the sales area.

Making Cider: We'll be doing cider demos throughout the day, approximately every half hour. This is an interactive activity, with children (and adults!) helping toss fruit in or turn the crank. All helpers must sanitize their hands first.

Self-Guided Tour: This hasn't changed much, though since we pastured the pigs through the orchard recently, the ground is considerably less even; stick to the main driveway in the orchard for smoother walking.

Other Vendors: The following vendors will have some wonderful goodies to buy!
  • Huckleberry Hives (honey and candles made by my sister), only available from 9am-2pm
  • Momma Bear's Quilts (quilts and quilted things made by my Momma), only available from 9am-2pm
  • Wayne and Rosanna's succulents and eggs (grown/raised here)
  • Tim's Maple Syrup
  • and of course, us, Silver Creek Nursery; we'll have a shared booth with Wayne and Rosanna's goodies. 
If you have any questions, please send us an email at sales@silvercreeknursery.ca, or give us a call at 519-804-6060.
