Orchard Tours

In the fall, we welcome small groups of all ages for orchard tours and wagon rides. Each year we also host many school group field trips. Please call ( 802 372-4848 ) or email us to schedule a tour.

Pick Your Own

Come pick your own apples and enjoy a wagon ride as well. We usually open our orchard to picking after Labor Day but the time really depends on the apples. If you would like to be notified when apple picking becomes available please call us (802 372-4848) and we will notify you with a postcard or email.
