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

Facilitator Profile

The love and care shown by the Christie family during your Canoelands Orchard excursion is what makes your visit unforgettable.

Now in their third generation, the Christie’s are as passionate as ever about creating quality farm produce and making ‘farm life’ accessible to everyone.

As co-owner Jamie explains, “We want everyone to know more about where their food comes from, to have the opportunity to eat fruit straight from the trees and taste the difference.  Children particularly are always amazed by the flavour.”

In a world where children 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.
