Fresh fruit doesn’t get any fresher.
Crisp, crunchy apples, fresh from the tree; sweet and tart berries, dark and delicious; gorgeous fresh vegetables, straight out of the fields; there’s nothing quite like the taste of produce picked from a small, local farm. And New Brunswick has all of your favourites!
Apple orchards are concentrated in the Saint John River Valley and along the Acadian Coast. And they offer tons of different varieties of apples to choose from—Honeycrisp, McIntosh, Cortland, Paula Red, Fuji, to name just a few. Apple picking season typically kicks off in late August, lasting through October. Many farms and orchards include wagon rides, corn mazes, country shops with homemade jams and ciders and much more. So gather up the kids or call up a friend, and head on out to a local farm for a quintessential fall afternoon in the orchard.
If it’s other sweet—and freshly-picked—treats you’re after, New Brunswick has you covered. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and countless fresh vegetables like corn, squash, potatoes, and tomatoes are available at roadside farm stands, and at special U-pick farms. Bring your appetite and get ready to taste something delicious!
