Canoelands Orchards – Vacation Care

In a world where kids are consumed by technology and instant gratification, the relaxed pace of the farm is a perfect opportunity for all ages to take a moment to reflect on how the food they consume gets to their tables.

“Staff were very easy going, accommodating, organized, down to earth AND most of all so HELPFUL!  Spent longer here than planned as it was just such a great day out!!!  Everyone, the staff and kids really enjoyed their day”. 
Yossi,  Jems
