Stokes Farm is a prime tourist attraction, located close to Narkanda at Thanedar in Himachal Pradesh. This farm is well-known for its delicious apples which are sold and recognised internationally.
Sprawling over a vast area, this farm features numerous apple orchards assuring a fresh and green atmosphere to the visitors. The man behind this commercialised apple cultivation is Samuel Stokes, an American who, influenced by Indian philosophy, came to India in 1904 and started this farm.
The best time to visit Stokes Farm is during the month of April when the apple trees blossom and convert the farm into an alluring white valley. Harvesting season, that starts in the month of July and lasts till September is another ideal time to visit.
