Owner of Smolak Farms, H. Michael Smolak, Jr. is excited to announce that 2016 is the best apple crop in 20 years!

When people talk about Smolak Farms, they think of apples! You will not find as many varieties north of Boston as you will here! The crisp, freshness in every bite is what you will find with Smolak Farm’s apples!

Our Antique Apple Orchard includes 20 different varieties of apples arranged in 7 rows with 3 groups of 10 trees in each row. This orchard was planted in 1992 to help preserve some varieties that are not longer grown for commercial harvest.

Those varieties include: Chenango Strawberry, Sops of Wine, Cox Orange Pippen, Sheepnose, Smokehouse, Rhode Island Greening, Fameuse Snow, Golden Russet, Winter Banana, Spitzenberg, Seek No Further, Red Stayman, Granny Smith, Yellow Newton, Lady, James Grieve, Baldwin and Wolf River, Macoun and Cortland.
