Over 200 apple varieties, specializing in heritage, connoisseur and red-fleshed varieties. Click here to read an article on Albert Etter, a pioneer in the development of red-fleshed apples.

Organically grown – using only natural fertilizers such as seaweed, manures, oyster shell and hay mulch. Non-irrigated – use of M111 rootstock combined with a heavy dew every morning avoids the need to irrigate.

A wild orchard encourages the growth of weeds, grass and blackberries around but not touching the apple trees.

At The Orchard you can learn about the quality and care that goes into producing organic food, the benefits and challenges of organic farming, view our awards and publications, and order fresh fruit the day it comes off the trees.

The Farmers Network is a resource and directory of local farms and businesses committed to providing quality service.
