Description:
The Uris Williams & Sons’s farm consists of 30 acres of apple trees, 4 acres of strawberries and some raspberries. Group tours, especially for school groups, are very popular at Uris Williams & Sons. Carole and Sophie lend a hand during the U-pick season each year.

 

Brief History
Eddy’s father bought the farm in 1965. The orchard was expanded steadily throughout the 1970s. In 1984, Eddy bought a share in the farm from his father and planted 20 acres of apple trees over a three-year period. Eddy purchased the rest of the farm in 1989.
