A family orchard and farm specializing in apples, cherries, and Asian pears. We grow some vegetables too. We are primarily pick-your own, but also keep several varieties of apples, pumpkins and winter squash in the fruit store for those who do not want to pick. Our trees are dwarfing and can be picked from the ground. Children especially enjoy coming here to pick. We endeavor to grow apples that taste the best, and grow well in Maine. We do not grow many Macintosh. Most orchards in Maine grow Macs, but we believe there are much much better apples. Many folks ask for macs and end up becoming fans of Prima or Liberty. We grow some apples that nobody else in Maine grows commercially.
Call 207 323-8226 to see what is ripe. This is our 13th year open to the public. We have added a large parking lot and fruit store.
