The Salt Spring Island (BC) Apple Festival on Sunday, Sept 29th, 2013, is celebrating the incredible apple diversity of our beautiful island. Although the crop this year is low, we are happy to include some other farms that are not normally Hosts for the Apple Festival to make sure your farm experience is delightful. In 2011, we displayed 302 apple varieties at Fulford Hall, all grown ORGANICALLY here on Salt Spring Island, BC.  We connect you with apples, that are tasty, rare, historical and unusual, and as a bonus, we will connect you with the farmers that grow them. Have a look at over 1000 photos from Apple Festival 2011 on the website
