Pick your own apples is on! Fri- 12-5, Sat 10-6, Sun 10-5
Picking Jonafree apples and we still have some 2nds peaches left.
Hard Cider Tastings too!
It has been a pretty bad growing year here due to rain and other factors. The tools available to us for organic growing had a hard time keeping up with the disease and pest pressure. We don't have our usual selection of fruit and the apples have not sized up to usual standards. The Jonafree apples we have for PYO are small, but clean and tasty! Hope to see you, we still need your support, especially on off years.

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 as sustainably as we can 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.
