Nature’s Bounty is situated on 100 acres of the scenic, rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine. Cathy and Marvin bought the farm as a young couple and started planting apple trees in 1980. Currently they produce over 20 different varieties of apples on approximately 14,000 trees. In growing the apples they use the latest in integrated pest management techniques to maintain the populations of beneficial predator insects and pollinators in the orchard. The result is fresh, flavorful food – locally grown apples.
As a mixed farm they have two other components to their farming operation. On the horticultural side, they also grow pumpkins of many sizes from mini to giant, various types of squash and ornamental corn. These are harvested in the fall coinciding with pick your own apple season. In addition, their farming enterprise includes rearing sheep. Their flock of 40 sheep roam the rolling green pastures and enjoy the many visitors during pick your own apple season. The sheep are accompanied by their protectors, the mother and daughter Llama team of Llana and Lilly, who are are constantly watchful for potential predators. During the winter the animals are fed hay and grain grown on the farm.
They strive for a safe, family friendly atmosphere. So come on out to Nature’s Bounty, walk the hills and enjoy a refreshing apple cider in their picnic shelter. Bring the kids to run and play in their corn maze, test themselves on the obstacle course and visit the sheep and llamas. Pick your own favourite apples and choose a pumpkin. Meet your friends and have a picnic. Enjoy the quiet, peaceful open spaces.
