Pick your own is over for the year. Thanks to everyone who came out for this short picking season. We will still be open through the Fall with hard cider tastings, jams and jellies, and sweet cider (as remaining apples hold out). Also, don't forget that Franklin County CiderDays is coming up Nov. 5th and 6th. Heres to hoping for a better 2017 season!
Our Organic Hard Cider available at:
We are a small Certified Organic, solar powered orchard and hard cider producer in Ashfield Massachusetts (Directions). We are growing apples with a holistic bent, taking into account the health of the flora and fauna as part of the orchard system, staying away from the use of even organic broad spectrum pesticides. From May to December we have hard cider tastings, and in the fall various apple varieties are available for pick your own and ready pick throughout our fall season.
Some of what we offer - all fruit, apple products, and maple syrup are certified organic:
We are continuing to develop our sustainable orchard management practices, which go beyond organic pest-control methods to include attention to ecological cycles in the orchard. Orchard management of this type is still in its infancy and it involves a lot of experimenting, and trial and error. Weather and yearly pest pressure varies greatly and will affect fruit quantity and quality.
We are now over a decade old, but still a growing orchard; we appreciate your patience and suggestions as we grow.
