The Orchard

Pinewood Orchards is a mature apple orchard uniquely situated only 10 minutes west of downtown Ottawa, Canada, in the National Capital Commission's "Greenbelt". We offer several different varieties of apples that are all hand picked from our 800+ full-size trees most of which are more than 50 years old. The older rootstocks of our trees and the high natural mineral content in the soil on the Canadian Shield, give our apples a taste that is second to none.


We hand sort and bag every apple, making quality our first priority. All our apples are for sale from the "Apple Barn" at the orchard or from our "Apple Cart" on Carling Ave. at Burke Rd. in Nepean. We also supply some finer eating establishments with apples featured in their menus.

Know where and how your food is grown, and who grows it. Help support the preservation of mixed use space and adding to the diversity of our community, making it more whole and satisfying place to live.
