Smith Farms

200 White Birch Road
Hudson, NY 12534


We are on the East side of the Rip van Winkle Bridge and slightly South off of  SR 9G,East on CR 14 then Right on Howe Road,which turns into White Birch Road as you enter the Township of Livingston.)(Your GPS, aimed at 200 White Birch Road, will land you at our door!)

Even though we are a smaller operation, by New York State standards, we do have over 10000 new generation trees and canes that offer their fruit for pick-your-own from June to late Fall. All our fruit is on “drip” irrigation, so except when our pond goes dry, in extreme weather, our produce is plump and juicy..

We will begin the season at mid/late June with the cherries,  sweet and sour; (we just planted more Sours).

We should have some earlier raspberries this year, since we did not cut the canes flat last Fall, for the first time.

Then in early August, our white flesh, sweet and juicy Saturn (flat) peaches are ready to pick and they are popular!!!!

From the end of August to mid October you will be able to pick from 6 varieties of free stone peaches and nectarines and from 7 varieties of apples such as Gala, Acey Mac, Honey Crisp, Fuji, Royal Cortland, Lady Apple, and Macoun, Jonagold and Golden Delicious.

Of course we will keep you posted  and will give you more details on what is ready to pick as we progress. Each year is a little different, according to the weather conditions, so visit our website picking calendar regularly and come and enjoy our orchard, as well as the beautiful Catskill area.

Olana Castle (New York State Park) can easily be seen to the North, from our raspberry patch.clicking on the “Condition at the Farm” link will advise you about the weather at the moment right in our Raspberry Patch!!

The fascinating Warren Street in Hudson, the Hudson Farmer’s Market and many other areas of interest are just 5 miles away, to the North.
