The orchard at Willow Pond Farm is Integrated Pest Management (IPM) managed (non-organic) and the apples are marketed at our farm stand, Pick-Your-Own, several Hannaford locations and other local stores and farm stands. We embrace a low-spray management system that still results in quality fruit and a healthy tree. The orchard is nearly a century old and the big standard trees are stately and beautiful.

The Pick-Your-Own apple season begins in early September and ends in late October.  There will be someone at the farm to direct you to the variety of apples that you are looking for and the best picking. 

  • Please pick within the designated picking area.
  • Apples are priced by the pound.
  • You may bring your own bags or picking containers (please remember to pre-weigh any boxes or heavy containers).
  • We have pull wagons located around the parking area and entrance to the orchard. Please feel free to use one!
  • You cannot "put back" picked apples so please only pick what you intend to buy and bring home with you. 
  • Our orchard has trees that are over 100 years old; they are beautiful, hearty and produce delicious and plentiful fruits. We ask that you please do not climb, swing from branches or throw anything at the apples for your safety and for the health of our orchard.

NEW! Beginning August 5th - the Farm stand will be open for business with fresh veggies, blueberries, early-season apple varieties and a wide-array of other food products including maple syrup, honey, pantry staples, snacks/chips and baked goods, bagels, and much more! 

Veggies available will rotate but include: tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, beets, cucumbers, green beans, yellow beans, carrots, cabbage, onions and salad greens. 


We open for the season on Labor Day Weekend. The farm is open from 9am-6pm every day. 

  • Pick-Your-Own apples are available from Labor Day Weekend through October. 
  • The farm stand remains open and stocked with apples, cider, vegetables, baked goods and dairy items into December. 

We accept the following payment types in the farm stand: Cash, Check, Credit Card (3% surcharge), Venmo, and WIC.

We encourage you to come enjoy time at the farm. The orchard is family run and operated and many of our customers have been coming for generations. We love to share the enjoyment of a sunny fall day at the farm!
