Applecrest Farm Orchard
Fruit & Vegetable Share: glorious, hand-picked fruits and vegetables grown as close as the crow flies. No week-long truck trip or genetically-modified, wax-coated square tomatoes here. Everything in your box is plucked from the fields the day of pick-up - chosen for ripeness, color, and seasonality.
Since the days nearly a century ago, when an "Apple Train" ran its route from the heart of Boston to the rolling orchards of Hampton Falls, Applecrest Farm has remained a cornerstone of the local economy and community. A 4th generation farm, Applecrest is the oldest and largest orchard on the New Hampshire Seacoast, nutured on by the Wagner family, who remain dedicated to their simple mission of sustainably growing the finest fruit and vegetables available. Visiting the farm today, one will discover a bounty of grown-on-the-farm delights, including leafy greens and summer vegetables, over 30 varities of apples, tree-ripened peaches, nectarines, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, sweet corn, pumpkins and fresh pressed all-natural cider from an on-site mill.
