Visit the Orchard


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 is CLOSED for the 2019 season!

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 by email.
