Welcome to Woodman Hill Orchard
We are a pick-your-own micro-orchard serving the city of Vergennes, Vermont and all surrounding towns in northern Addison County. The orchard has over 300 trees and several popular varieties to choose from. All apples are IPM grown using the latest techniques from the University of Vermont and Cornell University.
Hello friends and neighbors!
Fall is officially here and picking season is in full swing!
We have a number of varieties ready for picking (see below), as well as fresh-pressed cider, cider donuts, orchard made jellies, local honey and syrup, maple candies, pumpkins, gourds and other Fall delights.
Hours this season are 9:30am-5:00pm, Wednesday through Sunday. Stop on by and say hello!
Mid-Season Update – October 2021
Its early October and we just passed the anticipated half-way point of the season. Our hope is to keep on selling through October 31st. The main things that might disrupt our plan would be below freezing temperatures or selling out of apples!
The foliage is just starting to turn here in Vergennes, so the view is getting better by the day. And now is the time to think about stocking up on apples, cider and cider donuts. If you have room in your fridge, freshly picked apples can keep well for weeks. And if you want to extend your enjoyment of fresh cider and cider donuts beyond October, know that both items freeze really well.
Fingers crossed for dry, crisp, sunny days in the weeks ahead. Hope you’ll come visit us!
What we’re picking…
We are currently picking McIntosh, HoneyCrisp, Cortland, Macoun, Empire and Liberty.
HoneyCrisp supply is dwindling. Best to stock up while you can!
Apple drops for most varieties are plentiful, if you’re looking to stock up for baking or applesauce.
Over 9 varieties of Vermont grown apples available throughout the season.
We have nine popular varieties of apples to choose from – Honeycrisp, Rogers McIntosh, Thome Empire, Red Cortland, Macoun, Liberty, Sweet 16, Redfree and Red Rome.
Apples are both pre-bagged and pick-your own.
We also have limited amounts of peaches in August and pears in September.
Please call or check our website to see what we’re picking as availability changes throughout the season.
