Orchard Coast Farms is a diversified growing, food production, and tourism operation based in Picton, in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario.
Our main site is Hughes Orchards, a 125-acre property fronting Lake Ontario on County Road 8 in the Hamlet of Waupoos, in the Ward of North Marysburgh. Apples have been grown at Hughes Orchards for over a century. Today we have about 19,000 trees covering 37 acres producing 22 different varieties of apples. We supply apples to our own market garden store, local grocers, farmers' markets, juice makers, packers, and we open our orchards every fall for pick-your-own customers. We also grow raspberries, squash, and pumpkins and produce maple syrup from our 2000+ maples trees.
We sell our site grown produce at our roadside farm store. Hours vary seasonally from late June to late August according to crop availability. Opens daily from 10 am to 5 pm from early September to completion of apple harvest in mid-October.
