Jefferies Orchard was settled in 1822 on ground that is still farmed by the Jefferies family. An apple and cider business was started in early 1920 and other fruits and vegetables have been added ever since. Pick your own strawberries were started in the early 1950's. Everything we offer is grown and packed by us. Quality and freshness are important to our family and yours.

Spring crops begin with asparagus and rhubarb and end with strawberries around Memorial Day, depending upon the weather. Summer favorites are blueberries, sour cherries and peaches. Tomatoes, melons, peppers and cucumbers are usually available by late summer to early fall. Traditional autumn flavors abound at the roadside stand beginning in September: fresh apple cider, several apple varieties, squash, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and pumpkins of all sizes.
