EXPERIENCE THE DIVERSITY OF HOPE ORCHARDS
We offer a dozen pick your own apple varieties that ripen from early September through early November. Each has its own unique flavor, texture, aroma, juiciness and culinary attributes. New varieties become available each week as they become ripe. Visit regularly to experience them all.
WHEN IS IT RIPE FOR YOU TO PICK?
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.
Right next to this year’s apple is next year’s bud. Pick gently so there are apples when you come back next year!
We know it’s tempting, but climbing can easily damage or destroy branches that will take years to replace.
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!
There’s nothing like an autumn day in Maine and fresh fall bounty. Enjoy!
LOVE HAVING ACCESS TO FRESH PRODUCE?
Our home garden is filled with fruits, berries, veggies and flowers for you to enjoy. Harvest your own carrots, beets, beans, raspberries, grapes, dahlias, quince, and whatever else we have growing out there! Note we have pre-season offerings on early crops including high-bush blueberries and peaches. Follow us on Facebook to stay informed
DON’T MISS OUR SPECIALTY VARIETIES!
Throughout the season, two dozen of our most unusual and prized apple, pear and quince varieties ripen to perfection. They are available in limited quantity at the stand and not to be missed. Variety Weekend is a great chance to try them all, and to get in on the best of the best before they go!
