“I never knew there were so many kinds of apples,” Bernice said as she surveyed the bounty at Kiyokawa Family Orchards in Parkdale.
Residents recently took a field trip to the 105 year-old family-owned and operated farm that offers over 100 different varieties of apples and pears. Bernice was delighted to take home a “banana-apple” — a fruit with a mild crunch that’s easy to digest. “It was so good! I hadn’t had one in years.”
Meanwhile our Dietary Kitchen Manager, Jill, was thrilled to gather apples that she turned into apple pie for residents to enjoy during the weekly Happy Hour.
