Scott Farm Orchard is a 571 acre gem owned by the Landmark Trust USA. We grow 120 varieties of ecologically grown heirloom apples as well as plums, blueberries, peaches, pears, quince, nectarines, cherries, grapes, medlars and apricots. All our fruit comes from our very own free range trees. Last year we planted paw paws and persimmon and hope to harvest them in the coming year or two. This year we will plant new apple varieties and expand the existing orchard. The orchard has evolved from conventional management and cultivar selection to an ecologically managed heirloom apple oasis. The farm itself is something of an heirloom, settled in 1791 by Rufus Scott. Ownership then passed to the Holbrook family who expanded and diversified the farm. The orchards were planted in 1915 and soon became the main focus of the farm. In 1995, Fred Holbrook gifted the Scott Farm to the Landmark Trust USA, a non-profit whose mission is historic preservation.
