We never knew that there were hundreds of different types of apples around! And there were over 400 types found in Willie Smith's very own backyard! Amazing!

The kids had fun reading the different names of the apples and having a chance to hold them too!

We saw really ancient but cool machinery that was being used as part of the apple picking and sorting process. It was an eye-opening experience for both the young and old!

There is is! The traditional apple crumble with real apple slices! It is way sweeter than the ones I am used to, and the apple slices are a little sour. But the overall taste is delicious! You can certainly taste the home-made goodness in the pies!

The cheesecake was creamy but light, and it went very well with the vanilla ice cream too!

Not to forget a very warm and comforting glass of apple tea on a cold winter's day!

You can also enjoy apple cider tasting from $12!
