Kollas Orchard

41 New Rd
Tolland, CT 06084



Seven acres of previously non-cropped land was planted 1976-79 using tree spacing of 6 or 8 feet in rows 7.5 feet apart. A one acre planting was added in 1993 with trees spaced 12 ft x 12 ft. Another 2.5 acres was set in 1998 at 12 ft x 12 ft. Current orchard area is about 6 acres, 1400 trees. Future plantings, using trees now in our nursery will include modifications based on our experience over the past 40 years.

We are David and Janet Kollas, a husband-wife team. Kollas Orchard is our small research-oriented orchard begun in 1975 to test my ideas of how apple growing (orcharding) in New England might be made easier and perhaps even a reasonable occupational choice.
