About Our Apples

Our certified organic orchards contain a diverse selection of apple varieties, about 30 in total. Planted in the 1980’s, our orchards are used to research best practices for growing apples organically. Despite the diseases and pests that accompany apple production in the East, we’ve seen great success without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.
