Applecrest Farm Festivals to Continue through October
HAMPTON FALLS, NH – Applecrest Farm is New Hampshire’s oldest and largest apple orchard and holds the honor of being the oldest continuously-operated in America. Four generations of the Wagner family have worked this land, dedicated to their simple mission of sustainably growing the finest fruit and vegetables available.
Through out the fall months, the farm welcomes thousands from across southern New Hampshire and Massachusetts to taste more than 40 varieties of apples, peaches, berries, corn, pumpkins, and other summer vegetables. Their hot, cider donuts and other locally produced goods are sure to keep you coming back each and every year.
Whether your’e looking for their own hand-pressed apple cider, honey and jams that were locally made, glass bottled milk, or maple syrup native to New Hampshire, Applecrest is sure to meet your farmer’s market needs.
What is undeniable is Applecrest’s delicious selection of Pick-Your-Own fruit opportunities. There is just something to be said about harvesting directly from an orchard. Be sure to check out their guide to see what they currently offer for Pick-Your-Own fruit. This year’s PYO prices are as follows: apple: $18 for a peck or $30 for a 1/2 bushel and pumpkins are $0.60 per pound.
