About Us:

Welcome to Black Diamond Farm, source of the most distinguished, tasty fruit available locally or long-distance. In addition to our specialty heritage apples, we’re growing cherries, blueberries, apricots, peaches, plums, pears, and grapes.

In the heart of the Finger Lakes region of New York, our farm in Trumansburg is adjacent to the Black Diamond soon-to-be hiking biking trail. The area has a long rich history of apple growing. Despite our small size, we’re growing some of the most exciting new varieties and many treasured ‘heritage’ apple varieties. Practicing IFP (Integrated Fruit Production), we take pride in producing high quality fruit selected for excellent and unusual tastes.

We’re a small family operation. Ian and Jackie Merwin own the orchard and get the work done with a small, but capable staff.

There’s a small section of the orchard devoted to antique Fench and English apples grown for traditional hard cider blends. They have great names like Brown Snout, Foxwhelp, Fillbarrel, Magog Redstreak, etc. They’re not for eating fresh, but for great hard ciders they’re the best.
