Roger using the apple sorting machine on some large Zestar! apples. An early season variety, Zestar! have a sprightly sweet-tart taste with a hint of brown sugar.

Roger started two hives this Spring to pollinate the orchard. The flowers will bloom in a couple more days. Looking forward to the 2021 Apple Season, and everything starts now.

The shop is now closed for the 2020 season.

We were traveling up 116 looking at leaves. We saw a small sign for hot apple cider and we're instantly thirsty. Small apple farm one mile down it gravel road was worth it. Friendly family store, apple picking, and hot apple cider. Mmmm.

It was just a quaint little wooden building down a long dirt road… I bought a bag of apples and some homemade Apple cider… I went home and made a most delicious Apple crisp and drank my cider warm… the man who owned the farm was very friendly and there were dogs running around so it felt quite comfortable and homey!

Trees Planted 1998 --- Shop Opened 2008

North Country Orchard is a small family run operation with about 350 trees and over 20 varieties.  We specialize in fresh cider, fresh apples, local honey, local maple syrup and variety of locally produced high quality unique products.  Apple pickers are welcome!

Early harvest usually starts by the second weekend in September.  Early season apples include favorites like Ginger Gold, Paula Red, Jonamac & Zestar.  These are wonderful eating apples fresh off the tree. Others, like the Kerry Pippen are used for cider.

As the season progress more eating varieties start ripening like Liberty, Cortland, McIntosh,  Honeycrisp, Macoun, and Sweet 16.  Other varieties, such as Michelin, Dabinett, Kingston Black and numerous crab apples are used to make the best cider around.  

The end of the season includes one of our favorite apples, Cox Orange Pippin.  Developed in England in the 19th century, this little gem remains unsurpassed for its richness and complexity of flavor.  The season usually finishes up around Columbus day.

Even if you have not heard of an apple variety try it.  The flavors may surprise and delight you. Many are developed at universities like Cornell and University of Minnesota specifically for eating fresh but also to withstand Northern winters and to be resistant to pests and other maladies affecting apples specific to our region.
