Eco Apple Picking in Hemmingford

Philion Apples closeup.JPG
Apple picking season is well underway in Quebec. There are plenty of u-pick orchards to choose from around the province to suit your needs and even your apple tastes.

Les Vergers Écologiques Philion in Hemmingford is an ecological fruit orchard.  While it uses a lot of new practices in fruit cultivation, it's an old establishment. The orchard is run by Hubert Philion, the fifth generation of the family to run the farm. Sonali Karnick went out to meet Hubert among the trees to see what he's doing differently.
