We have been growing apples on this farm for over 100 years and have been selling to the public on site for over 40 years.
Occasionally the very old variety Beauty of Bath is available mid-late August.
The trees are pruned in the winter months and blossom visually blooms in mid may which is a beautiful time of year.  Upon request customers are free to walk through the orchards at most times of the year.
