The Maples is home to a beautiful orchard. Apples, pears, plums, cherries, walnuts, grapes, and hazelnuts abound and there is always something to harvest in the garden.
Because we have a large orchard, it is difficult to keep up with all of the harvesting. For 2011 we will have our tree sharing program, where you harvest the entire tree, and keep half the fruit! Contact Us for information about which trees are available. Most of the trees are at least 30 years old, so produce a large crop. This is a great way to enjoy organic fruit without paying organic prices.
