I went to Applewood farms recently, and had an experience that left me deeply affected. As I made my way through the exit, I couldn't help but notice the sudden and rude checking done by a particular employee who was white female, her colleague addressed her as Kash. At first, I tried to dismiss it, thinking it might be a misunderstanding or just an off day for the individual. However, the situation soon escalated.

I was carrying 4 pumpkins and we had 4 tickets, but she could not get her numbers together and demanded very rudely, she wanted to see 4 tickets, we did point out to her that the number of tickets is EQUAL to the number of pumpkins as per the applewood farm rule.

She miscounted the tickets as less than 4. She was rude about it.

Later on I stood at a bit of distance and noticed about her behaviour that she did not scrutinize white Canadian visitors to the farm for exit tickets with such insulting precision, but for People of Colour and East Asian, she was exceptionally crude and insulting in her demands to check tickets.
I left the farm feeling disturbed and distressed by the blatant racism I had encountered and was watching others encounter the same.

I hope the Management takes care of this and retrain the staff to be racially sensitive and provide satisfactory customer service. We don't visit the farm to be put down. Canada belongs to all races not just one particular race, I hope the management ENSURES that this racist behaviour of that staff member is addressed.

However, the vendors at Poutine and Fries Stall and Honey and Maple Syrup stalls were satisfactory with Customer Service.

I started going to Applewood Farm 40 years ago to pick strawberries and kept going every years, in the last 10 years to pick apples. They started charging an entrance fee but you could use it against what you picked. In the last few years, there is the entrance fee plus you have to pay for what you pick, so my friends and I stop going as it made it too expensive. The people at the booth would remember us but it has changed, it is too bad as I enjoyed going.

This place was overcrowded and unsanitary.
Outside washrooms were unusable and kid’s playground just looked scary.
It definitely should be investigated…

It’s one of the worst farms I have ever been to.
They charge $10 to get in for absolutely nothing!
Apple picking is ridiculously far and you have to wait for a wagon forever.
There is no playgrounds for kids, no animals, nothing to buy, all garbage. They only serve overpriced fries…

Save your time and money, do not go!

In the beginning of the trail, I was quite disappointed as there didn't seem to be a lot of apples. However, once you go on the hay-ride to the far end of the farm, there's a plethora amount of apples! We grabbed a bunch and got giant squashes. :)

Apples are good. I ate too much while apple picking that I got full... I wanted to get my money's worth.

Protips:
1. bring a spray bottle (you can get these from the dollar store) to spray apples so you can eat them. (Everyone is eating while apple picking.)
2. bring water for the spray bottle.
3. bring sunscreen. :)
4. bring a stroller/wagon of some kind. Will make the process way less painful.

My daughter, nine month old and myself visited the farm today, enduring 30* temperatures and long lines to enter. Pleasantly surprised that seniors are free! But surely there must be a faster way of processing the entry - have two more staff perhaps?
We were confused on where to go and yes I do read signs. We entered a long row of trees and walked and walked but the trees were bare. We finally came upon a lush supply of apples but alas on the other side of a rope barricade with DANGER signs not to enter, Maybe there were land mines🤪.! Our only information came from other visitors. The wagon ride out to the pumpkin/squash patch was fun. The driver should give a little heads up before he departs as we all lunged forward as he unexpectedly started the tractor. No problem if you aren’t holding a baby or a senior recovering from hip surgery.
The roadway out is the same one in and if you think that getting a parking spot right up near the entrance is a good idea, think again. Pedestrians with their kids and pumpkins are trying to maneuver around not only cars trying to back out ( oh woe) but foolish drivers trying to enter when they’ve been told by an employee not to ( only one on duty) . Despite what sounds like grumbling, we did have a lovely afternoon. I got to pick a ginormous squash which I’m turning into soup. We will return perhaps mid week Wed-Fri

Yikes!!! It sounds like you made the best of a crazy busy and crazy hot day at the farm. Sorry that there were a few "bumps" during your visit. We do appreciate that you found the fun in the day anyways. We will take note of your comments and try to do better. To be honest, we were expecting a rain day yesterday. Instead we got a scorcher, and huge crowds. We are very grateful.♥️ Thank you again! Enjoy your soup...yummy! See you on a weekday next time.😊🍎🎃

There are no strawberries but they still will charge $10 per person to enter. What a rip off. On finding there were no strawberries left, we wanted to sit at a picknick table to eat our lunch but they will not let you do that. Some kid has the unfortunate summer job of delivering this horrible message to potential customers. Do they want you to come back later? I guess they hate people. They will even charge an 18-month-old the same fee. Do not go here. They will find a way to make you feel horrible.

Wow... Not even sure how to address this. First of all, we only charge for ages 3-65. Your 18 month old would have been free. $10 includes the cost of your strawberries. We have a beautiful crop of berries today, not sure when you visited?? If you came to the farm and were told we had slow picking by our staff, who are also our children, it was to save you the disappointment of coming and not finding any strawberries to pick. We clearly update our phone message and Facebook page multiple times as day as the picking conditions change. We are after all, running a business. If you wish to use our picnic tables and play yard you must enter the farm. If you enter the farm, then you must pay the fee. There was no deception, we did not lure you in under false pretense. We strive to offer a fair and fun outing for our many repeat guests. Sorry we were not the farm for you.

I have been here a few times for strawberry picking with the family and to visit the winery with my girlfriends.
The strawberry picking is very fun and you get a tractor ride, which my son loved.
For the winery check in advance if they are doing sampling. I went once before and they weren’t doing it which makes it hard to buy wine as it’s fruit wines that you likely haven’t tried before.
Went back with girlfriends another day when they were doing sampling and it was amazing. Highly recommend their cider and the Apple jack! The wines were good too!

We visited the farm in group of 4. Entry fee is $10/person which includes visit to apple farm, pumpkin and squash farm and also corn maze. Good day spent picking up apples and tasting different varieties. Corn maze was good too, although because it was raining in morning it was little muddy. Winery is next door to the farm, but could not visit the winery as it was closed. However the shop had few wines, cider and jams made from local produce. If you're planning on visiting, made sure you carry hand sanitizer and wear proper boots to be walking in field.
