Welcome to Adventures in Flavor! Hundreds of 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.
- Varieties in very limited quantities are often stickered either with the variety name or a number, for ease of identification. To identify this year's varieties labeled with only a number, look here.
- Many of our apple varieties are available in limited quantities and will not be available at all farmers' market or CSA pickup location sites.
- Are you an apple fan? Pick up an "Apple Passport" when you visit and make tasting notes as you enjoy adventures in flavors all through apple season!
