Cardigan Mountain Orchard Story:

Steve and Nancy Bleiler moved to the small country town of Alexandria, New Hampshire in the late 70's with no intention of being apple farmers. They were both teachers and on a trip to NH and found this small quaint apple farm. They bought it thinking they would use some apples for their personal enjoyment.

The orchard was in rough shape when the Bleilers first acquired it. After a lot of hard work, the Lord enabled them to bring back almost all of the original trees and have since been planted many more. Today there are almost 1,000 apple trees!

Twenty years later, they had both left their careers teaching to focus their attention on the farm full time. These days, the whole family is involved with the business in various ways with the help of  their sons William, Stephen, David and their families.

Everyone has worked hard and sacrificed a lot to get this small farm on its feet, but agree that it has all been worth it.
