Quonquont Farm has 3 acres of blueberries and more than 10 acres of apple and peach orchards. Our trees are maintained using Integrated Pest Management techniques, relying on natural pest predators and a minimum amount of spraying. Hand-thinning apples and peaches in June promotes flavorful fruit of a nice size at harvest time. Semi-dwarf trees allow customers easy access for picking. Tree-ripened fruit is naturally fresher and contains more nutrients than most supermarket fruit which is often picked ”green,” stored and shipped long distances. Our apple varieties ripen from late August through late September and include favorites like Paula Red, Gala, McIntosh, Cortland, Macoun, Jonagold, Golden Delicious and Northern Spy. These are varieties suited to hot summers and crisp falls, which combine with rocky soils to create distinctive New England flavor.
The Farmstand and orchard are now closed for the 2015 season. Thank you so much to all our customers for your patronage this season! We look forward to seeing you all in 2015!
