Our Visit to Davison Orchards

We took a little road trip to Vernon on the weekend so that we could visit Davison Orchards. (you can view their website here) Although Miko was a little too young to enjoy most of the activities and attractions, there were soooo many fun things for kids to do!  It is apple season right now and pumpkins will be harvested in October. We had such a great time I think we will go back again next month to pick out a pumpkin.
 The Critter Corral was something we could all do together and Miko loved it.  Basically it's just a fenced off area that you can walk through and watch the animals (or feed them if you are interested)


 The goat walk was pretty cool.
 This sweet donkey was my favourite



 Ah the smell of fresh hay....









 The setting was just gorgeous, they had so many beautiful fall displays and colourful flower beds.
Next year, when Miko can toddle around, there will be many more activities he can enjoy. There is a huge farm-themed playground, a sand pit with a tractor and horsey-swings and Johny Popper train ride that I can't wait to ride next year.
 The caf√© was amazing!  Wow, I haven't had such deliciously wholesome food in a long time.  There was something about the charm, the menu and the setting that reminded me of my Mom's Tea
Room(s).
The Market and Gift Shop were hugely popular, bustling with activity and shelves bursting with delicious baked goods and lovely gifts. I found a cute little crafted pumpkin, I love it so much I think I am going to buy a few more next time.  We also bought a 4L jug of their delicious apple cider, we definitely need to buy more of that next time as well. And of course I had to have a piece of apple pie!
 
There is no doubt this trip will become a yearly tradition in our family.
