Welcome to Scott Farm

More than an Apple Orchard—Workshops, Events & Historic Rentals!

Our 571-acre property, owned by Landmark Trust USA, is home to 23 historic structures and 40 acres of hillside orchards heavy with fruit in season. In addition to producing heirloom apples and other fine fruits, we offer a series of educational workshops and special events at the farm. The property is also available for weddings, social events, and seminars. Come for a day trip or plan to stay in one of our beautifully restored historic rentals that surround the farm, such as Naulakha, the former home of famed writer Rudyard Kipling.

120 Varieties of Ecologically Grown Apples & Other Fine Fruits

Scott Farm Orchard, managed by Orchardist Zeke Goodband, produces 120 varieties of ecologically-grown apples – heirlooms with names such as Roxbury Russet, Belle de Boskoop, and Cox’s Orange Pippin, and unusual varieties like Winter Banana and Hidden Rose – some of the finest in color, texture, and taste. Other fruits include quince, gooseberries, medlars, Asian pears, plums, elderberries, table grapes, pears, blueberries, nectarines, and peaches—available at our Farm Market and at local coops, farm stands and grocery stores.

Farm Market & Pick-Your-Own Orchard

Visitors are welcome to stop by the Farm Market and pick up a bag of fruit, heirloom cider, pies, cheeses, jams, jellies, maple syrup and other Vermont-made products and items. Plan to picnic by our pond, see the many stone walls constructed by The Stone Trust, and head to our PYO orchard for a memorable apple picking experience. Our pick-your-own orchard, offering McIntosh, Spigold, Cortland, Jonagold and Macoun apples, is open 7 days a week from Labor Day into October.  To ensure food safety, we ask that you not bring dogs into the Farm Market or the PYO orchard.

Knowledgeable & Friendly Staff

The Scott Farm team, comprised of Zeke, Kelly, Erin, Tristam, and other Farm Market staff are available to answer your questions about the property, our heirloom apples and famous heirloom apple cider. We look forward to sharing the bounty of the farm with you!

FARM MARKET 2017 HOURS: Open Daily, 9 to 6 Sat, July 15- Wed, Nov 22.
