The Apple Farm is the current incarnation of the agricultural spirit that has animated this land for generations. Most recently apple trees have adorned these hills for a hundred years or more. Prior to that a vibrant Native American community of the Seneca Nation honored these grounds with their agricultural prowess.
We offer u-pick apples August – October, make our own apple cider and cider donuts fresh onsite and offer a variety of locally made products and fair-trade goods in our year round gift shop. We are constantly changing and evolving as we strive to build a sustainable, vibrant and unique farm experience for the community and a sustainable, supportive business environment for our employees. We are grateful for your support!
