Champlain Orchards in Shoreham is Vermont’s premier orchard. They are one of the oldest continuously operating family owned, ecologically managed orchards that is well worth the drive, just an hour from Pond Mountain Inn. Their method of growing fruit follows a strict and inspected eco-sensitive, minimally-treated and natural method as possible.
Kay and I continually seek out Farm To Table delicious food to prepare for our guests and this is one of our favorite places. We normally spend over an hour roaming about the orchards picking over a bushel of apples. This is truly Vermont’s premier orchard and we treated our guests to this wonderful experience. Afterward, we taste five varieties of hard cider – my favorite was Honeycrisp single varietal cider!
You can pick your own apples with over 110 varieties to choose from. Also, in season right now are fall raspberries, Asian pears, and European plums.
