Welcome to Woodman Hill Orchard!
Open Wed-Sun, 10am - 5:30pm through the end of October 2019
Open on Columbus Day - Monday, October 14th!
We are a micro-orchard serving the city of Vergennes, Vermont and all surrounding towns in northern Addison County. The orchard has over 300 trees on 2.4 acres to choose from, including several popular varieties. All apples are IPM grown using the latest techniques from the University of Vermont and Cornell University.
We moved to the property in 2016 (see the Our Story page for the full story) and have been quickly learning all we can about growing trees and running an orchard. We look forward to meeting you and hope that you will enjoy our orchard as much as we do!
2019 Wooden Apples
If you looked hard for the wooden apple in our orchard last year but didn't find it, you have another chance coming up! The Apples to iPads program has unfortunately been discontinued, but participating orchards will still be hiding wooden apples and have prizes to offer for those who find them.
The search continues here at Woodman Hill Orchard! In addition to a Vermont Country Chocolate Gift Basket from Lake Champlain Chocolates, the prize now also includes a half bushel of apples (winner's choice on the variety), a gallon of fresh pressed cider, a pumpkin and raw, local honey from Woodman Hill Apiary! Each week we up the ante, adding to the prize to make it more enticing. When the apple is found, we start over!
There are opportunities to win all season long. So bring your keen eyesight (or your best glasses) and try to find this little wooden apple hidden amongst our 300 trees!
What we're picking...
We're currently picking HoneyCrisp, McIntosh, Cortland, Macoun, Liberty, Sweet 16, Empire and Rome.
You can pick drops drops for $12/bushel. Bring your reusable bags and it drops to $8/bushel.
We also have fresh-pressed cider every day and hand made cider donuts on the weekend. Pumpkins, mini gourds, maple syrup, honey and apple butter are also fully stocked. Come on by!
