Murphy Orchards is a 65-acre, family owned and operated fruit farm, located about 12 miles due north of Lockport, New York, 3 miles south of the Lake Ontario shore, and 25 miles east of Niagara Falls, in Burt, right next to Newfane.
We are very proud of the heritage of this farm that is our new home. The farm has been a family owned and operated fruit farm in continuous production since the early 1800s.
We still grow plants on the same soil to earn our living, and still use the farmhouse, barn and outbuildings built by Charles and Libby McClew in 1850.
Charles and Libby McClew are believed to have been part of the Underground Railroad Network between 1850 and 1861.
The farm's structures, the orchards and the landscape itself remain virtually as they were 150 years ago, allowing you to step back in time and experience a very special and unique view of Underground Railroad History.
