From Taves Family Farms. Taves Family Farms Applebarn is celebrating its 24th season! That’s over two decades since we opened our doors and started welcoming people to enjoy our family farm.
We invite you to come and visit us at farmer’s markets or at the Applebarn, and find out why we were voted Abbotsford’s Favorite U-pick, and why we recently were honoured with a Rotary AgriLink Award, and chosen as Market Vendor of the Year.
Ever since Great Grandfather John purchased his first plot of land back in the 1930s, farming has remained a family tradition. Three generations later, and still located in the southern lands of the Fraser Valley, Taves Family Farms continues to thrive. Only, now it’s John’s grandson, Loren Taves, who operates the farm along with his wife, Corinne, and their children.
We will be the first ones to tell you that living on a farm in the Fraser Valley is living the dream. One farm quickly grew to a few, and now we harvest everything from apples to heirloom tomatoes to pumpkins. We decided to share our gifts by creating an agritourism attraction called the Applebarn. Every September, our communities tell us that they eagerly wait for the doors to open so they can pick their own apples or bring their families out for some fall family entertainment!
