Why Buy From the Farm?
From the day the apples are handpicked, they are stored at ideal temperature, humidity, oxygen and nitrogen levels. This allows us to deliver delicious, crunchy apples to your table without sprayed on wax.
It’s important to know where your food comes from. All of our apples are handpicked, stored and sorted on the farm. This greatly reduces bruising during transport and ensures the fruit never leaves ideal storage conditions. This also helps us reduce the cost of re-handling and transportation, giving you and the apple the lowest carbon footprint possible.
Intense soil sampling and applying the correct mix of fertilizers ensures the trees are in their peak health to fight off diseases, reducing the need for spray. When absolutely necessary, we spray our trees using a smart spray system that has sensors to target problem areas which reduces drifting and eliminates over-spraying.
Buying locally supports the economy. On the farm we do our best to partner with a range of local businesses from storage maintenance to tractor repair and beehive rentals.

Honey Direct From The Orchard
Drummond Farms is excited to be collaborating with Nadia Hornsveld, owner and beekeeper of Solidago Ridge Apiary. The honey is a blend of apple blossom and wild flowers from the Drummond Farms property. You cant get honey any more local. As a step to be more sustainable, Drummond Farms is leaving fields of the property to grow up in natural grass lands. This is to increase biodiversity, protect native pollinators and to feed Solidago Ridge’s bees with a bounty of wild flowers for phenomenal flavour. Nadia First started beekeeping on a trip to New Zealand in 2008 and was immediately hooked. She recieved her Master Beekeeper certificate in 2017. Nadia started her own hives in 2016 and started Solidago Ridge Apiary in 2017. Solidago Canadensis is the latin name for Canadian goldenrod, which is the last food sources for bees in the fall before the long cold winter.
