Trees Planted 1998 --- Shop Open 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 flavour.  The season usually finishes up between Columbus day & Halloween.

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.
