Samascott Orchards is a family owned and operated farm that was started in the early 1900's. In its early days, the farm was like most other farms of its time. Many crops were grown, but dairy products and caring for dairy cows were the main focus.
During the period from the 1940's through the early 1960's, the second generation owner, Oliver Samascott, increased the size of the farm from its original 180 acres to our present 1,000 acres. Much of this newly purchased land had existing apple orchards and by 1970 the focus of the farm shifted from dairy to apples.
With our newly purchased land, our apple crop grew significantly in size which gave way to the introduction of pick-your-own in the early 1960's. At that time, we had only five different varieties of apples to choose from. Since the 1970's, we have continually increased our apple selection and jumped from the original five varieties to now more than 50 varieties.
Slowly, the abundant, fertile land became used for the addition of other crops. Today, we grow hundreds of varieties of fruits and vegetables and offer many of them to our pick-your-own customers.
Our farm is open seasonally (approximately June - October) for pick-your-own fruits and vegetables. We also fresh-press apple cider weekly, make homemade baked goods including pies, muffins and apple cider donuts and gather free-range eggs daily. We sell year-round at farmers' markets in Manhattan, NY. Visit our website for a complete listing of where to find our products.

We have been shopping at Samascott's for years, but I want to finally share my excitement about their apples, cider and other products. I just got two bags of apples for crisp and pies.... [more]
