About us: North Star Orchard is a 20-acre farm where our focus is on unique and heritage varieties of fruit (over 300 varieties of apples alone!) and a wide selection of vegetables. We operate a large fruit CSA, sell at area farmers’ markets, and have an on-site farm store, so there is a lot going on for you to enjoy being involved in. We grow non-certified organically-grown vegetables on 5 acres and IPM tree fruit on about 12 acres. We also have an extensive, multi-year apple breeding program and have been developing new varieties of certain vegetables as well. For more information, visit www.northstarorchard.com
We have a great team of folks who are passionate about farming and sustainability issues. If you’re someone like that, we’d like to learn more about you.
