Rent A Tree: This is an apple tree rental. You choose the variety - all are certified organic! You pick or we pick. Contact us or see website for variety list. Expect a yield between 80 and 120 pounds in a typical year, although yield will of course vary.

Organic Apple CSA: CSA members receive 75 pounds of certified organic apples and a gallon of our premium apple cider annually. Every two weeks between mid-August and Thanksgiving, each CSA member picks up a 10-pound bag (1 Peck) of certified organic apples of the variety that is ready to pick that week. The last share before Thanksgiving includes baking apples and apple cider. Members also get discounts and special offers throughout the season.
