Crop Schedule

For several generations, since 1943, residents of the central New York communities have savored the taste of locally-grown apples from Twin Orchards.

Originally, there were two orchards side-by-side, which is where the name Twin Orchards came from.

Our first seasonal apples are ready for consumption in late July or early August and our apple harvest lasts all the way through October.

Additionally, we have other seasonal fruits, such as peaches in early August, grapes in September, and pears throughout the season.

When our growing season is over, we continue to sell our apples, and we receive shipments of fresh citrus from Florida and California.
