Primarily a “Pick Your Own” apple orchard, Mountain Orchards grows 11 varieties of apples. They have a retail store in which we sell pre-picked apples along with artisanal products, a bakery and their world famous apple cider doughnuts. Families flock to Mountain Orchard in the Fall to enjoy the orchard experience, along with the many kid-friendly activities found throughout the property. As an  industry leader in agri-tourism in the Ottawa region,  they have been running this wildly popular business for 44 years with no end date in sight.
