Welcome to Woodman Hill Orchard
Thanks for a great season! See you in late August 2022!
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!
Orchard season is winding down! Our last day of operation will be this Sunday, October 31st.
There are still apples on the trees for picking and PYO volume discounts are in effect. The stand is also open with fresh-pressed cider, cider donuts, orchard made jellies, local honey and syrup, maple candies, pumpkins, gourds and other Fall delights.
Hours for our final week are 9:30am-5:00pm, Friday (10/29) through Sunday (10/31). Stop on by to say hello one last time!
End of Season – Late October 2021
Phew! It’s been a busy couple months!
We’re glad to see much of our abundant crop has been moved out and we’re down to just enough for one more week of apple picking.
The temperatures have started to drop at night and we’re preparing ourselves for quick post-season cleanup before things freeze. We have steep discounts on apple drops this time of year for baking and canning projects. And we offer them free for livestock feed.
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 well (donuts for a few weeks, cider for as long as you want).
What we’re picking…
We still have Cortland, Macoun and Empire apples on the trees.
You can still find a few HoneyCrisp if you’re willing to hunt a bit, but they are definitely picked over.
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.
