Ochs Orchard

4 Ochs Lane
Warwick, NY 10990


Ochs Orchard is a three generation family farm.

In the late 1930's it started as the partnership of Ochs & Scheuermann.

Peter Ochs and Chris Scheuermann ran a wholesale apple and peach fruit farm until 1969.

In 1969 Peter purchased Chris Scheuermann's share of the farm and in 1971 invited his son, Leslie, to operate the orchard with him.

In 1973, Leslie and his wife, Susan, purchased the orchard from Peter.

Les promoted the retail trade by opening a farmstand.

He then started growing vegetables to provide a variety of produce for sale.

Next he introduced the idea of "Pick-Your-Own Apples" to the orchard and it became very successful.

Eventually, Les installed a cider press so that fresh cider was made every week for the rapidly growing Farm Market.

In June 1994 Les passed away. Today, Susan and their son, Alan, operate the farm.

Like Les, their goal has been to continually improve the farm by providing more for their visitors.

Pick Your Own now includes strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, blackberries, apples, pumpkins, nectarines, tomatoes and flowers and more.

Besides cider, they now provide fresh-made donuts and fresh-made ice cream.

Entertainment and education expanded with the introduction of a small petting zoo, a working beehive.

Behind the scenes, Alan is using new technology with the new plantings, so that there's more yield which is easier to pick.
