We are a micro-orchard serving the city of Vergennes and all surrounding towns in northern Addison County. The trees were planted in 2002 focusing on a pick-your-own concept with low scaffold branches to make it easy for small family members to pick. The orchard has over 250 trees to choose from including several popular varieties - Honeycrisp, McIntosh, Empire, Cortland, Macoun, Liberty, Redfree, Rome and Sweet 16. All trees receive pesticide sprays following weekly guidance from the University of Vermont and Cornell University using the latest Integrated Pest Managements practices. This practice requires monitoring both fungus and insect activity within the orchard. When a particular sampling exceeds the allowable threshold only then is the appropriate action taken to correct that specific problem. We hope that you will enjoy our orchard as much as we do, and don’t forget to buy local.
