A trip to the Apple Shed is a must-do each autumn for fans of the fruit.
For others, it’s a weekly excursion.
The Apple Shed, on an idyllic spot among the drumlins off of Fairville Maple Ridge, is certainly off the beaten track.
Thankfully, the business, part of the Wells family for over 100 years, finds itself in the running for Best Apple Orchard in USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice 2019 contest. People have just three more days to vote.
Barb Wells, who owns the Apple Shed with her husband, Gary Wells, said she has “no idea” how their business got nominated, but she’s thrilled they did.
She said that win or lose — they were in fifth at last count — the publicity is good, not only for the Apple Shed, but for the county’s fruit-growing operations.
