We are a micro-orchard serving the city of Vergennes and all surrounding towns in northern Addison County. The trees were planted in 2002 focusing on a pick-your-own concept with low scaffold branches to make it easy for small family members to pick and full 360 degree access to each tree. The orchard has over 250 trees to choose from including several popular varieties - Honeycrisp, McIntosh, Empire, Cortland, Macoun, Liberty, Redfree, Rome and Sweet 16. All apples are IPM grown using the latest techniques from the University of Vermont and Cornell University. We hope that you will enjoy our orchard as much as we do. As we like to say, 'We are the smallest orchard in Vermont, serving the smallest city in Vermont'. Remember to buy local.
Due to an unusually warm (record breaking) warm spell mid-season, our crop was damaged to the point where we decided to close. Our goal is to provide only the highest quality apples and we were no longer able to do that. Claudia, Gus and I are looking forward to seeing you all during the 2015 season. We do have drops available for $8.00/bu
'Tis the Season....for HONEY CRISPS

Only the apples on the trees at Woodman Hill Orchard are sweeter than David Ambrose and his wonderful family who own and operate this great place. The recent cool nights drove me to check the website the progress of this season's crop as my grandchildren are getting PYO fever. Two clicks later, BINGO! Honey crisp season is upon us. Enjoy the season everybody.
