Can’t beat September in NH to cheer us up at summer’s end. The apple crop here looks good overall. The cider apple crop – of drink-only types – is huge.

The Basics:

In every harvest season, we offer many kinds of apples to pick, more kinds to taste and take home. Big, small, sour, sweet, red, green, yellow, gold, squeezed fresh for Poverty Lane sweet cider or squeezed & fermented for Farnum Hill ‘real’ ciders, the fruit you find here offers pleasure and surprise to just about everyone. (The land around here grows shockingly good apples, some of the best in the world — and some lovely pears too.)

Early on we offer ready-picked Ginger Golds and Paula Reds, pick-your-own Macs and Cortlands, plus Clapp’s Favorite pears. Soon the Macouns, Gala, and some early heirloom apples come on. More and more varieties of apples & two more kinds of pears ripen as September passes and October begins.

A few weeks into harvest, you can explore and pick in our amazing trial orchard, Two Below the Barn, containing dozens of different apple varieties, some early, some very late (variety chart here.)  Be aware that some varieties are coming on early this year, so the times on the chart may not apply in every case. Call! (603/448-1511)

So visit often for: unbelievably good fruit, free tastes of everything we grow or make, free wagon rides on fair weekends, picnic tables all the time, views across the valley, acres of space inside a big fence (kids can run far, but can’t get lost). Local pumpkins, gourds, squash, jams & jellies, but no candy racks, and no pressure.
