Welcome to Adventures in Flavor! Over 300 varieties of apples are here at the farm, in a wide range of colors, sizes, and (most importantly!) flavor. Most of the varieties are either very new or heritage/antique varieties. We will continue to update descriptions and pictures as young trees start producing.
- Many of our apple varieties are available in limited quantities and will not be available at all farmers' market or CSA pickup location sites.
- Be sure to pick up a free Apple Passport at a farmers' market or CSA pickup location. The Passport includes a list of 72 of our more-likely-to-be-seen varieties, complete with a basic key and a place for your tasting notes!
