Since 1871, six generations of Bishops have been serving the shoreline with fresh farm products. Our farm market has grown from a roadside stand of the 1910's to a simple, yet bustling market, handling fresh fruits and vegetables, and related farm products. Our farm market in Guilford is open year-round with one or more of our crops available each month of the year. Our "big red apple" is a landmark known to many from near and far.

The Bishop family represents the fine tradition of growing and selling the finest quality native fruits and vegetables. We have everything for your cost conscious meals and family gatherings, from Connecticut Wines (including our own) and soup, salads, vegetables and fruits to prepared foods, including large trays of our most popular dishes! Don't forget cider, meats and of course pies!

Another aspect of our family farm is our pick-your-own season which starts in June with strawberries and goes through October with apples and pumpkins. Our 24-hour phone information line, 203 458-PICK, is updated daily during the picking season. Days and hours of picking are subject to the whim of Mother Nature ... please call ahead for the latest information. We look forward to having your friends & family enjoy the fun of pick-your-own at Bishop's Orchards!

Annual events such as our Donkey Festival and Apple Blossom tours and our Shoreline Wine Festival are just a couple of other attractions that make Bishops a great destination for the whole family and your friends. Visit our animals (Llamas, Alpacas and Goats) too! Come and enjoy the bounty of local goodness that we have to offer!

Since 1871, six generations of Bishops have been serving the shoreline with fresh farm products. Bishop's Orchards Farm Market and Winery is a great place to shop for your everyday groceries, but also a great destination too. Our Farm Market, Winery and Pick Your Own Fruits are just a few of the great things this local business has to offer. Open year round this is one place not to miss.
