OUR VARIETIES

Apple picking time

Golden Delicious, Pinova, Chantecler, Granny Smith, Starking, Black Stayman… Pick your choice !

The harvest season generally runs from late August to mid-October. Depending on the apple variety and the weather conditions, the harvest may take place earlier or later in the season. However, mid-September is the ideal time to enjoy a wide variety of apples.

⚠ This year, our apple trees are impacted by climate change: the harvest will be restricted and will run from the end of August to the end of September. We’re counting on you to pick a maximum of 50 kg so that all Astros fans can enjoy them!

During the harvest season, we reserve the right to close our orchards for the day in case of rain.

AN ORGANIC SHIFT

Our Environmental Engagements

As our vines are already organic, it was logical to think green for our orchards, despite the apples’ sensitivity to diseases. All our orchards are in organic conversion for an Ecocert certification in 2023. Our team is committed to preserving our ecosystem and ensures the quality of our apples by favouring natural and measured cultivation practices as well as the use of local biodiversity.
We recommend that you eat our apples as soon as they are picked, as they do not contain any preservatives.
