About The Orchard
The orchard at Shade Tree farm has about 90 mature trees bearing fruit. There are an addition 300 or so that have been planted in 2009 and 2010 that should begin producing in 2012. Some years the earliest varieties are ready towards the end of July, sometimes the first part of August. Just check with us about that time to see if they are ready.
We have several varieties of apples including Anna, Granny Smith, Gala, Jonathan, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and several others. We have a couple of trees that bear beautiful red/green apples. We don't know what the variety is, so we've taken to calling them the Bell Witch Mystery Apple in honor of Adams' most infamous "resident".
We also have peach trees that produce towards the end of July and are usually gone by the first week of August. We have about 50 peach trees that are later-producing and should be ready in mid to late August beginning in 2012.
We have a few pear trees, blackberries and blueberries. Just check with us to see what is available.
We also make cider and sell it in 1 gallon and 1/2 gallon jugs.
