Fall moves fast… and Thanksgiving’s right around the corner. If you don’t have any plans for Thanksgiving this year, we’ve got you covered. If you’re longing for a fun day trip with your friends and family, you can visit Colborne, a quaint little town sprinkled with vintage architecture and colorful murals. You can even book a walking tour and take a walk through Colborne’s history featuring art galleries, artistic shops, and retail stores with cute winter merchandise.
And if you don’t already know, apples are big business in the Colborne area. You can drop by the world’s biggest apple structure at The Big Apple on Highway 401. The Big Apple is home to delicious apple pies, apple bread, and apple-based treats. The apples are freshly harvested from the apple orchards right in our backyard in Northumberland County. They’re used in their most organic form, without any preservatives, to create stunning desserts.
Try out out our apple pies
What’s Thanksgiving without a delicious slice of apple pie? Our apple pies are decadent and flavorful with a flaky, buttery crust and a lightly spiced apple filling. Our most popular is the dutch apple pie with an added layer of custard and raisins between traditional pie crust.
We also have a diverse and growing selection of gluten-free products for customers with special dietary needs including gluten-free apple pies, apple cake squares, apple bread, etc. Freshly baked in our on-site factory, these desserts are made with whole grains and natural sweeteners, perfect for those who prefer healthy alternatives. If you’re picking something from the store on your way to grandma’s for Thanksgiving dinner, this is the way to go!
