The blueberries are ready! We will open for picking (or buying fresh from our farmstand) on Saturday, July 9, 2016. See you in the blueberry patch!
Quonquont Farm has 3 acres of blueberries and more than 10 acres of apple and peach orchards. We maintain our trees using Integrated Pest Management techniques, relying on natural pest predators and a minimum amount of spraying. We hand-thin apples and peaches in June to promote flavorful fruit of a nice size at harvest time. Our 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 early October 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.
We host weddings and special events in our beautifully renovated 19th century barn. Click here to learn more!
