A short video to preview what a day at the orchard involves.
About the provider:
It’s easy to see why students love their visit to Canoelands Orchard! Catering for up to 150 students
per day, not only is there an abundance of great experiences ranging from bee presentations to
tractor rides, fruit picking to animal petting; but it’s the love and care shown by the Christie family
that makes a visit unforgettable.
Now in their 3rd 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 & taste the difference. Kids particularly are always amazed by the flavour.”
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.
