Vue d'ensemble

Aucu vote pour l'instant.

Cornell Orchards is first and foremost a research and teaching site for the Department of Horticulture and other departments in Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
In addition to apples, they grow peaches, plums, cherries, pears, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, gooseberries, currants, pawpaws, chestnuts, and beach plums. They also sell some produce from their Thompson Vegetable Research Farm in Freeville. But they donate the vast majority of that harvest (as well as some of our fruit) to local food charities – more than 80 tons in 2005 alone.
Cornell Orchards is a working orchard, vineyard and fruit farm managed by the Department of Horticulture. They sell fruit from their research and teaching plantings at their retail outlet, on Route 366 south of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

That site includes their storage and packing facilities, cider press and research lab, surrounded by 37 acres of fruit plantings. ‘The Orchards’ also includes 100-acre facility in Lansing, where the waters of Cayuga Lake moderate the temperature and extend the growing season. This allows them to grow European wine grapes, peaches and other cold-sensitive crops.

To stretch out the fresh-apple harvest season from mid-summer to late fall, they grow more than 50 varieties – from the latest selections to centuries-old antiques. They sell about 20 for fresh eating and grow others especially for use in our custom-blended ciders.

All sales proceeds support their teaching and research programs.
