The stars of the show! Starting in May we have fresh asparagus and by late June there are juicy strawberries. We are installing raspberry and blueberry shrubs this spring so that we can have berries all through the summer in coming seasons. In August those amazing plums come in and the belle of the ball...the sun-ripened peaches! September and October are a parade of heirloom apples like nothing you have seen in the grocery store.
Organic fruit tree and native perennial nursery
Starting in late April, we have organic fruit trees that we have grafted for sale. We also have a variety of native perennial flowers and shrubs with an emphasis on plants that are beneficial for insects and birds. Check out our Nursery Catalog for all the details.
Unpasteurized sweet cider, custom pressing and raw cider vinegar
Sweet cider is available starting in mid-late September. We have our own rack and cloth press right here at the orchard. Our cider is top notch because of the different blend of apples that we press each week, with a focus an apple varieties that are excellent cider makers. We also can press apples (unsprayed only) for you if you have 10+ bushels at a time. Call us in late summer to set up your appointment. We also sell bulk cider buy the bucket or carboy for any hard cider makers that want a blend of unpasteurized heirloom cider apples. We are starting up the cider vinegar side of the business again in the spring of 2019 and hope to have vinegar by the fall of 2019.
We provide some orchard work including pruning by request. We still have a few spaces left in our 2019 pruning schedule. In 2020, we hope to start offering custom grafting services. At this time, we service Brooklin, Sedgwick, Deer Isle and Stonington. Email or give a call to discuss details.
