Stop off at The Big Apple, a country store and quirky cultural attraction. The main building resembles a big, smiley-faced apple, and houses a museum that explains the area's agricultural heritage. Elsewhere on the site, you'll find plenty of opportunities to tuck into apple-flavored treats, including the restaurant's apple pies, served with a big dollop of ice cream. With fun activities for guests of all ages, the extensive grounds also include a mini golf course, farm store, and smokehouse.

  • Staff is very helpful and friendly. They go out of their way to help. Coffee is great pies are amazing , They have so much to look at and choose. There is definitely something for everyone. Washrooms are amazing in the decor you could spend hours just looking at everything. Very very clean .
  • It was my first time there loved everything. I give up chocolate for lent but it all look so good.The butter tarts were awesome. I will be back. 5 stars all the way .The staff were awesome great service.
  • Fresh delicious apple pie made in-house, is there anything else to say? Can't wait to return during the summer and try the new smoked menu. Worth a visit if you're passing by! :^)
  • It's fun place to visit with whole family. Especially if you are planing a trip in summer there is a lot of things to do for children. It's about 2 hrs drive on 401 east from Toronto. Open year around. We have been here several times. They have a cafe where you can eat. Sandwiches, baked goods, pickle, cider, wine, snacks, treats for kids, souvenir and much more.
  • I always go there with my family when we are having road trips and we pass it on our way. The apple bread and apple pie is really tasty. I order it every time. They have good service and their is a petting zoo, and a big Apple that they go inside of and go to the top of the huge apple. I really recommend this place if you are passing by.
