Poverty Lane Orchards
This is a 21st-century apple farm with a 19th-century variety mix. Just like old-time market growers, we sell a broad range of apple varieties valued for particular reasons. Their colors, shapes, textures and flavors amaze our fall visitors as early-ripening varieties are followed by mid-season and late varieties, every one differently delicious!
Poverty Lane Orchards' fields were all dairy land till about 1960, when the first apple trees were planted here. Till about 1980, this place produced classic New England wholesale McIntosh and Cortlands of the highest northern-grown quality. The market recognized premium fruit, and paid for it.
Farnum Hill Ciders
We are proud of Farnum Hill Ciders, and delighted to see more and more small-scale cider-makers coming onto the U.S. cider scene. Meanwhile, we're also encouraged to see skilled commercial apple-growers planting for cider. As in the wine world, cider-apple growers may want to make their own, or to sell their fruit to cidermakers. Already, the price of cider apples is many times the processing price that eating apples bring. That makes cider orchards valuable. Here's hoping the future of distinctive American orchard-based ciders will outshine the past!
