Owner description: Growing food & family memories since 1933! At Davison Orchards, you get fresh, local produce grown right here in Vernon, BC. And we don't just grow it - we use the ingredients in our bakery and café to make the most delicious farm food you've ever tasted. Everything we grow is available to you right here on the farm. We invite you to be part of the story of your food from start to finish. You can see the crops growing, the fruit being picked, and the apples being peeled for our famous apple pie. Because our family has been running this farm for over 80 years, we want your whole family to enjoy their time here. There is something for everyone and we hope you'll make your own happy memories and traditions.

We actually live not too far from here, so we go often. My daughter loves it, and in October, her school goes every year to pick a pumpkin from the patch. You ride the little train made of large apple boxes. It's always a fun time.
Since we first started going, they have added a really nice play area (which you have to pay to go into), that my daughter absolutely loves. At the time of this writing she is 11 and looks forward every year to Nana taking her to the pumpkin patch.

This is an "urban farm" - good selection of market items, wildflowers in season and their pies are legendary. Cute activities for kids including hayrides. Thanksgiving/harvest time is "The" time to go, especially for the pumpkin patch. it's a bit "touristy" and therefore a bit spendy - but fun nonetheless. Weekdays in October can be busy as they do school field trips during the day. If it's a rural, no-frills "vines on the ground" pumpkin patch you are after, there is a different pumpkin patch, on St. Anne's Road above O'Keefe Ranch - that's my first choice for a pumpkin outing.

Davison Farms has a good selection of local fruit and vegetables in season. They make fresh fruit pies and carry a lot of interesting items worth the look. There are some free things for kids to do but there is also a pay play area with much more equipment as well as a petting zoo. You can also ride a small harvest cart behind a tractor to take a tour through the farm and orchard. I good afternoon's fun.

An excellent stop for all with and without children. From the start of summer (May) to the end (Oct) this is a constantly changing attraction. It has everything from a petting farm, orchard tours, fresh fruit and vegetables and a restaurant. Homemade baking and ice cream with fresh fruit are extremely popular. Just watching the small children run around the place with big smiles on their faces shows their opinions of this place. In October the pumpkins take over and are worth a trip there to see.

We went to Davison orchards for a family gettogether this June with our 2 year old granddaughter,and got to feed the goats and all the animals there.The cool thing is they have these little vending machines to buy the feed for the animals.We all had a ice cream cone and slice of their homemade apple pie(excellent),would highly recommend this attraction to anyone with small kids.
