Finland’s southernmost apple orchard with about 1200 trees is at Kökar in the Åland archipelago. The farm is located in Österbygge, about 2 km from the main road.
Peders Aplagård is today a two-family company, started in 2006, but Peder has grown apples on the farm since 1985. The many hours of sunshine on the beautiful island produce sweet and tasty apples.
A farm shop with a café, Aplaboden sells the farm’s apple-based products, locally produced honey, handicrafts and other small and good things from various food craftsmen. The café recommends the Åland pancake à la Aplaboden and other good homemade cakes with coffee. The visit can be combined with an overnight stay at Brudhäll hotel in Karlby village www.brudhall.com.
