Applecheek Farm is a certified organic family farm with a grass based dairy as the main enterprise. Our philosophy is simple. We strive to produce food that encompasses dignity, local economy, optimal nutrition and restores the ecological capital within our soils. Our passion is to grow healthy foods in a sustainable way for our present and future generations. We focus on breeds that are known for their gourmet qualities and slow growth. They are superior in nutrition, texture and flavor -leaving you the dinner with a happy palate. We raise rare and heritage varieties of animals that do well at foraging and living on the range. We are a second generation farm and we love what we do. We invite you to come and visit our farm and see our way of farming first hand, which is good for the land, good for the animals and good for the people. Our family has owned and operated Applecheek Farm since 1965.
We offer organic grass fed beef and humanely raised veal, pasture raised regular and heritage turkeys, pasture raised gourmet French Chickens, African French Guinea Fowl, French Muscovy Ducks and pasture-raised eggs. We started our Meat CSA in July 2009 and open a Localvore Farm Market in October 10th, 2009. Applecheek Farm also offers agri-tourism, sleigh/wagon rides, farm tours, llama treks, school field trips,and hall rental with catering services .

We live in Stowe and make a weekly trip out here to get our eggs, fresh milk and meats. Very friendly family always willing to help and answer questions, and show our toddler son their chickens, etc. Highly recommended!
