Since 1812 the Sweetser family has grown a wide variety of popular and heirloom apple varieties. Today, three generations of the Sweetser family help run the orchard business. See the chart of our 39 apple varieties here. We are in the process of updating the chart to include the new varieties that we have planted. We now grow 50 varieties of apples on the Sweetser Orchard.
Our official closing date is Sunday, December 7th, 2014. Be sure to get your cider orders in for Thanksgiving and the rest of the Holiday season!
We’re open for the 2014 season and have picked 6 apple varieties already! We will continue to have more varieties throughout the season, and we will have 10 new varieties to try this year! Check back throughout the fall for all our apple varieties and the many breads, pastries, and of course, our extremely delicious CIDER that changes week to week! We will also continue to have vegetables, including incredible corn and later in the season, pumpkins, squash and gourds! We will be shipping apples again this year, staring when the McIntosh are ready.
