Choosing & Picking the Perfect Apple

Our Farmers will greet you at the orchard and teach you how to pick the perfect apple!

Are we organic?

Part of the appeal of eating local food is the knowledge that it’s been grown responsibly and with extra care. The philosophy that guides how we farm across all our crops is a commitment to ecological farming. This means balancing the needs of our crops with the health of the entire farm ecosystem, and always working to promote a balance between the two. It’s an approach that’s close to organic and combines the best of modern farming and traditional techniques. For more information, visit our Farming Practices.
