Johnny Appleseed's Farm

A fixture of the community since the late 70's, our farm now offers two retail stands and two u-pick locations.  Depending on the season, u-pick peaches begin in early August with u-pick apples starting a week or two later.  U-pick peach season usually finishes in early-mid September, with apple season ending in late October.  U-pick pumpkins and a corn maze are offered in the fall.  Our orchards currently offer over 40 acres (15 varieties) of dwarf apple trees and 35 acres of easy to reach peach trees.  Our orchards are family friendly for all ages (pet friendly too) and are handicap accessible.  Tractor rides to the picking on weekends in the fall will take you to beautiful views of the area.  Mondays and Tuesdays are senior days in the orchard, with a 10% discount.  Our two retail stands offer fresh picked fruits and vegetables (mostly Ct grown) as well as locally made pies, breads, maple products, native honey, jams, etc...We also offer seasonal items such as locally produced cider,  pumpkins, mums, Christmas trees, wreaths and much more.  Both of our stands are also handicap accessible.  Credit cards are accepted at all locations.
