Mead Orchards

15 Scism Road
Tivoli, NY 12583


Mead Orchards is a picturesque, 185-acre fruit orchard and vegetable farm, located in the Mid-Hudson River Valley in northern Dutchess County, New York, about 4 miles east of the Hudson River. We're about 100 miles north of Manhattan, and 50 miles south of Albany.

When G. Gordon Mead purchased the farm in 1916, it was a 100-acre "general" farm, with a small dairy, chickens, hogs, and a variety of grain and fruit crops. He shipped apples in barrels to New York City down the Hudson River by boat. The farm was known as "White Clay Creek Orchards" (White Clay Creek runs through our property) until the late 1980's, when the name was changed to Mead Orchards.
