Orchard Update

We are so excited to share our bumper crop of apples with you this fall! It’s been fairly warm, so we are going to open earlier than years past. Our early season varieties such as Zestars, Sansa and, new this year, Sweet Maia should be ready for our opening weekend August 24th, 2024.

We’ve been busy since last fall. Despite the warm spring, we were able to make our own wood-fired maple syrup again. The warm weather also made some apple and peach trees bloom early. We spent the evening of April 24th covering up the peach blossoms with sheets collected from family and friends.It got down to 26 degrees that night and we think our group effort saved the crop! Peaches will be available for the very first time ever this year!

We will have cider donuts, homemade apple pies and fresh pressed cider available daily. Bring a picnic and enjoy the view!

See you soon!

This is seriously the nicest pick your own orchard I’ve been to. So many varieties – many I haven’t seen before. The crimson macs are off the chain – sweet, tart, crisp and an amazing color! And the owners were really nice and explained the different varieties – all of which were clearly labeled. Definitely going back next year.

Made a side trip to Cobble Knoll on our way to Fairfax. Very impressive variety of apples (and pears)! Autumn Crisp and Jona Gold my fave so far, but I still have a peck full of different ones to try. The cider is incredible. Really lovely owners with an abundance of knowledge and pride of ownership! Beautiful vistas of the Adirondacks. Will go again.
