New Planting
In 2010 we began planting an experimental one acre block of new trees. We are exploring innovative high density growing practices as well as apple varieties that will be good for making hard and sweet cider. Some of the new trees are traditional European varieties such as Kingston Black, Yarlington Mills, Michelin and Dabinett. However, we are also very interested in rediscovering wonderful regional varieties that have been overlooked in recent time: Classic New England Baldwin;Northern Spy; Winesap; Newton Pippin; and of course the Russets; Roxbury Russet; St Edmunds Russet; and Golden Russet. New, delicious, very productive and disease resistant varieties are being developed by university agricultural centers in the US,and we are very excited by the prospect of Goldrush and Liberty in the roster. Though small in size we love the crabs for their super sweet, super sour and super flavor: Harrison, Wickson and Virginia. We hope to have fruit from these new plantings in 2013. The success of this block will help guide the selection of new trees for both table and cider fruit as we grow production at Cedar heights Orchard. Come and let us know what you think.

Apples Galore At Cedar Heights Orchard
For the best apple picking this season visit Cedar Heights Orchard just 3 miles from the village of Rhinebeck. Harvesting a wide variety from now through October. Cedar Heights is the only "pick your own" location in Rhinebeck.

Family Owned
Cedar Heights has been a family owned orchard for over a 150 years! We have also been replanted over the last couple of decades with Galas, Cortlands, Jonamacs, Empires, Macouns and Red Delicious. The orchard is situated high on a large hillside and features one of the most magnificent views of the Hudson Valley. Easily accessible, its a treat to pick and picnic with friends and family, and great for the children.

Looking Forward To Another Great Season

Greeted by owner, Arvia Morris, all are welcomed from 9am- dusk. Good visible signs on route 308, from Rhinebeck on the left at Pilgrims Progress Road and on route 9 going north 3 miles after the light on Wey Road will point the way. Further information 845-876-3231 .
