Scott Farm Orchard and Market

More than an Heirloom Apple Orchard—Workshops, Events, Weddings & Historic Rentals! The 571-acre Scott Farm, established in 1791, is home to 40 acres of orchards and produces 125 varieties of ecologically-grown heirloom apples and other fine fruits, such as plums, peaches, pears, quince and medlars—available in-season in the Farm Market.

Scott Farm also offers a Fruit CSA, heirloom cider, vegetables, and Vermont products, Pick Your Own apples, as well as heirloom apple boxes available through mail order. An annual fruit tree sale and educational workshops on grafting and pruning, baking, preserving, and hard cider making are offered throughout the season, along with annual October events to include Heirloom Apple Day on Columbus Day Weekend, the Kingston Black Hard Cider Festival and an Apple Harvest Dinner— held in the Apple Barn, a popular wedding and event venue. Four historic vacation rental properties, also owned by The Landmark Trust USA, surround the farm and are available year round.

 

Enjoy a Walk on the Farm

The trail at Scott Farm loops around a wetland that hosts a rich diversity of fauna and flaura. Scott Farm is on the National Register of Historic Places. Beyond its historic significance and remarkable beauty, Scott Farm is a little piece of paradise where one can enjoy and discover an bounty of different heirloom apple varieties and fruits. Maintaining a hiking trail is another way for us to share our farm with visitors.
