I love this place. There are lots of country type gifts in gift shop. Should be able to find something there for that difficult person to buy for. A lovely cafe where you can eat inside or out on the patio, and everything is homemade. A great place to spend an hour or two. Location is just off Bella Vista Rd. in the city.

I recently moved to the area and was told by one of my clients in Alberta that I absolutely HAD to visit Davison Orchards. He also mentioned that I should pick up a pie and fruit...but most importantly, I must not leave without a jar of their homemade Apple Butter! So I stopped in and wandered around on a sunny week day. It was fairly busy in the shop/market area. I picked up an apple pie, a jar of jam, red pepper jelly and of course a few jars of Apple Butter (one to be shipped to the client in Alberta) I had a wonderful time looking around their store. The staff are all so friendly and helpful! I had such a nice visit, I ended up bringing my husband the following week. We visited the animals and had some fresh frozen yogurt and berries on the patio. And that Apple Butter? It is THE BEST I have ever had!! I'm hooked!

A welcoming environment that is family friendly. Lots of wonderful fresh fruit to choose from. Excellent home made pies and great restaurant... kids enjoyed the children's play area and tractor train ride. Overall a fun filled afternoon.

This is a fantastic place to take any young children for multiple visits, and there are many activities to discover and enjoy as they get older. The animals, tractor-train ride, sand box, and play structures are all terrific. Don't leave without buying a peach pie to share with your friends - nirvana!

We go to Vernon very year and always stop at Davison Orchards with the kids. We have pictures of the kids there every year, sometimes with friends and cousins, and fantastic, sun-drenched memories.

The Davison family have built a wonderful, welcoming family place. The grounds and view are beautiful and there's no admission to walk around or let your children play in the front sandbox/play area. Yes, you can spend a lot of money, but that's only because the offerings are so attractive - delicious pies (they have the best apple pies in the world, bar none) and apple slushies, a treat and ice cream counter that makes your kids' eyes pop out, gorgeous produce and charming gifts. I've probably spent thousands here over the years, but I can't say I begrudge a penny of it.

The Davison family are also wonderful hosts, happy to chat about their farm and obviously delighted to have visitors. I remember the first day we met Farmer Davison was in the petting zoo. I didn't have any quarters for the 25c goat food dispenser, so my toddlers were trying to feed the goats grass from around their enclosure. Suddenly, Farmer Davison came out of the shed next to it. My kids were intimidated and backed away, and I was wondering whether it was OK to feed the goats grass. Farmer Davison said: "Wait." He went back into the shed, got a huge handful of goat food and poured it into their palms. They've worshipped him ever since.
