Put on your jeans and sneakers for a September Saturday in the country. It’s time to acquaint yourself with the apple orchards close to Richmond Hill. At Organic Farm in Markham, you can pick your own pesticide-free fruit on weekends and weekdays beginning September 1. This weekend the Ginger Gold and Red Free apples are ready to harvest, both excellent early season eating apples. Cooking apples will be ready mid to late season. The family run farm is at 7550 19th Avenue at 10th line in Markham. Apple picking is a lot of fun!
