From their website:

“AFTER MUCH THOUGHT AND DISCUSSION, WE HAVE DECIDED TO CLOSE THE FARM TO THE PUBLIC FOR ‘PICK YOUR OWN’.  WE HAVE NOTICED GROWING DAMAGE TO THE TREES OVER THE YEARS AND WE MUST ALLOW THEM TIME TO HEAL.

WE WILL MISS THE MANY FAMILIES THAT WE HAVE GOTTEN TO KNOW AND WATCH GROW OVER THE MANY YEARS. WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATRONAGE AND UNDERSTANDING.”

A family operated farm located on the beautiful Beamsville ‘Bench’, Windwood Farms has become a traditional destination  for families and friends to pick fresh and tasty apples, pears, and plums.  The farm is also home to a big pumpkin patch where you can personally select that perfect specimen to carve into something special. The quaint market is the place to go for fresh seasonal vegetables, pre-picked fruit, baked goods, and of course, Windwood’s Famous Apple Cider.
