Fall has fallen. The weather in Stratford is getting cooler and nothing goes better in the crisp fall weather than crisp fall apples. If you’re looking to spend some time outdoors, enjoying the fall air, what better way than with a trip to a family farm to pick a few fresh apples? The blog team at Williams and McDaniel has a few suggestions of farm orchards near Stratford and how to best enjoy the bounty once you get it home.

 

Appleland Station

Fill your basket with your favourite variety of fresh apples at Apple Land Station. It’s only 35 minutes by car from Avon Place. Hop on the farm train to the orchard and pick until your heart’s content. The train engineer will show you how to pick them and point you to your favourite variety. When you’re done with your pick, the train will be back to pick you up. You can also pick a pumpkin from the patch, get lost in the corn maze and more!

 

Orchard Home Farm

Orchard Home Farm is about an hour drive from Avon Place. Harvesting your own apples has never been easier. First, get directions from the orchard map and drive or walk right up to your favourite apple variety. You won’t even need a ladder because all apple varieties grow on kid-friendly “Dwarf” and “Semi-Dwarf” trees. Apple bags are provided and admission is free! They are open everyday from 9am to 7pm, including weekends and holidays.

 

Make a Pie

Now that you’ve got a big bag of apples, you’ll want to put them to good use. What could be better than an Old Fashioned Apple Pie? Cozy up this fall with a big warm slice. Store the remainder of your apples in the refrigerator.

 

Curl up with some cider


Spend a cool, crisp fall evening sipping some fresh homemade apple cider. Whether you prefer spiced, spiked or plain and simple, there is a cider recipe that is right for you.

 

The Williams and McDaniel blog team hopes that this week’s post help you make the most of the fruit that fall bears. For more information on Williams and McDaniel rental properties in Stratford, including Avon Place (359 to 397 Railway Avenue) please click here.

 

4 fast and effective HIIT workouts

Summer is a time when you want to look your best. You also want to feel your best and feel good in your body. What you don’t want is to spend hours in a gym. The blog team at Williams and McDaniel Property Management has one word for you — HIIT. Ok, so it’s not actually a word, it’s an acronym for High Intensity Interval Training. We’ve put together some workouts you can do in as little as 20 intense minutes in the comfort of your Stratford apartment at Avon Place (359 -397 Railway Avenue). As always, check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.

 

Best for beginners

This HIIT workout video for beginners takes you through a warm up and introduces beginners to
the basics. Don’t expect it to be easy — the whole point is to work as hard as you can for a short period of time. It requires no equipment, making it easy to do at home. Good luck!

 

Get it in and get on with your day

An intense 20 minute workout seems to be the “sweet spot” for keeping focus and form. Any less than 20 minutes and you may not be working as hard as you need to — any more than 20 minutes, and you may not be as efficient and intense.

 

20 minutes, no equipment needed

A HIIT workout means working out as intensely as you can for a brief period (usually 30 seconds to 1 minute) followed by a less intense moving rest period, followed by another intense peak period. This video will show you how. The only equipment you may want is a yoga mat.

 

HIIT Ladder

This workout requires an intense 20 minutes, but the results can include a better you! This straightforward workout video takes you through the paces, step by step, then a quick rest, then more intense steps, getting progressively tougher as you go.

 

If you’re looking to burn calories, burn fat and get a leaner, stronger body that you feel good in — HIIT may be the best way to go. It won’t take up much time, but it could make a big difference in how you feel.
