AT THE ORCHARD

Our orchard covers 250 acres of land, including twelve hectares of fruit trees with more than 15 varieties of apple trees, cherry trees, plum trees, pear trees, and several vegetable gardens. U-pick starts in mid-July with cherries and continues to the end of August with plums and pears, and then with apples and squash until fall arrives with its cool wind. Apple picking time, a fall classic revisited at Verger Champêtre – Gîte & compagnie, offers so much more than just U-pick!
