What to Know When You Visit

Bring Your Own Bag

Cloth bags work best, and they’re a great way to conserve. If you forget your own, we can provide you with one.

Pick Gently

Right next to this year’s apple is next year’s bud. Pick gently so there are apples when you come back next year!

Don't Climb

We know it’s tempting, but climbing can easily damage or destroy branches that will take years to replace.

Come Often!

Each week offers new varieties, and they’re all so different. Visit frequently to enjoy the full breadth of the season!

Dress for the weather

This time of year can be fickle. You can never go wrong with an extra layer and a hat or sunscreen.

please, no pets

We love animals, but in consideration of others and for the health of your pet (hot cars!) please leave your pet at home.

Ask Us Anything

We are passionate about what we do and quite seasoned. If you’ve got a question, ask away!

Have Fun!

There’s nothing like an autumn day in Maine and fresh fall bounty. Enjoy!

School Group?

We gladly host elementary school classrooms on Fridays throughout the season!

Our home garden is filled with fruits, berries, veggies and flowers for you to enjoy.
