About Us

Our motto at Wilsons is "Take a Walk, Eat an Apple". As one customer said, it is not really a tagline, it's a mission statement here. Wilsons is part nature park, part orchard. Surrounded by old oak forest, the farm occupies both sides of a valley with Rapid Creek winding through the land. Joyce and Robert 'Chug' Wilson first fell in love with this ground in 1980 and set to work building an orchard of apples that tasted like apples should. They planted over 120 varieties over the years, all chosen based on one simple criterion: great taste.

Tours / Events

In addition to our regular tractor rides, available each Saturday and Sunday throughout the season, Wilsons offers tours and events for all types of groups.



  • School Tours - available by appointment Mondays through Thursdays during the apple season (August - October). Tours typically include a tractor ride through the orchard, apple tasting and other apple-related education. Charge of $2 per child.

  • Company Tours/Picnics - available throughout the year, but particularly popular on fall weekdays. Great way to get out of the office, build teamwork and eat some fruit!

  • Weddings - we offer a unique site for a wedding - in and amongst the birds and the trees. At present, only outdoor venues are available, but tents can be arranged.

  • Parties - ask us about having your next party at the orchard.

Testimonials

We love Wilson's Apple Orchard. So much of it is, of course, eating the most delicious apples anywhere, but it's also getting out in nature and enjoying the beautiful weather that comes with apple season. People at the orchard are just happy to be there! Should we mention the turnovers? We try to wait until we get home to eat them, but there are rarely any left by the time we get to Hwy 1.

Wilson's has made it nearly impossible for any of us to eat grocery-store apples!
