About Canton Apples
We provide multiple varieties of pre-picked and u-pick apples, through earth friendly farming techniques. You can buy apples from our farm several ways. The first of our apples ripen near August 1. We accept pick up orders via phone, email or Facebook messaging with advance notice. There is also a good stock of apples at two retail locations, Nature’s Storehouse on Main Street in Canton, NY and Potsdam Food Co-op on Elm Street in Potsdam, NY. For those looking to be connected with their food, our u-pick orchard will open in September.
Our U-Pick orchard consists of 150 apple trees with 19 varieties. Varieties available for u-pick include Liberty, MacFree, Honeycrisp, Freedom, Sweet Sixteen, McIntosh, Haralson, St. Lawrence and Macoun to name a few. We are growing these, and many more ‘old varieties’ or heirloom apples at our other orchard locations in Canton. Those varieties include Golden Russet, State Fair, Duchess, Early Harvest, Egremont Russet, Yellow Transparent, Ashmead’s Kernel and Milwaukee to name a few. For a full list of varieties we maintain at our orchards, see our varieties page.
We realize many are not familiar with the names of many of these apples. You are encouraged you to give them a try as many of these varieties have gotten lost in the massive advertisement and production of modern apples. You will not be disappointed!
Our goal is to maintain availability of our fresh fruit from August through October for eating, culinary purposes and cider. We also encourage hard & sweet cider makers to visit as we have good varieties for excellent blended cider! Bulk apples are also available, please contact us for more information.
