We are closed for the 2016 season. Thanks for another great year, see you all in 2017

The farm belonged to the Coffin Family when Maine was part of Massachusetts. It was then sold to the Wentworth Family who planted the first orchards. The current owners, Steven and Marilyn Meyerhans, purchased the farm in 1973 from Royal and Irene Wentworth.

The soils and climate of our central Maine location are unsurpassed for  producing crisp, hard and brightly colored McIntosh. While we can offer the very  best of many delicious, newly developed apple varieties, we specialize in the  wonderful old-time varieties that are indigenous to our area: Macs, Northern Spy, Golden Russet, Pearmain, Winter Banana, and others.

Our fresh pressed apple cider is made from a blend of those old-time varieties and is famous for miles around for its rich, smooth, golden goodness.

We welcome you to visit our farm and its pituresque barn store, where in addition to all our apple products, you will find home-made jams and jellies of  every description, pure natural local honey, maple syrup, scrumptious, home-made  pies and breads, local vegetables and loads of country charm. We also invite you  to stroll through the orchards, perhaps pick a peck or two of your own apples in season, or watch cider being pressed. Bring a picnic. It's a great family outing. The Apple Farm is open from August to December and is located on the Back Rd. (1 mile off Route 104 between Waterville and Skowhegan).
