Throughout the Season...

"Pick For Your Neighbor"

Vermont Foodbank & the Agency of Agriculture encourage customers to pick apples, pay for them, & leave them here. Then, the Foodbank picks them up and distributes them so that our neighbors get fresh, local food. Thanks so much for joining us in this important program to help out our neighbors!

GOLDEN DONUTS!

EVERY DAY we hide wooden donuts painted gold out in the orchard to be exchanged for a FREE DONUT if found! Just bring them up to the Orchard Store to return your find for a tasty prize!
