Philip Orchards

Pick your own, pick the best!

Claverack, NY 12513 - (518) 851-6351

We have a good crop this year. Copious rain during the growing season, together with our rigorous thinning program has produced a good set in almost all the orchards. All apple varieties are plentiful and many will have good size. Unlike last year, Macs and Cortlands will be plentiful, as will Jonamac, Jonathan, Rome Beauty, Macouns and Spartans. We also have a bumper crop of Lady Apples. Pears are scarce. There are some Bosc and Seckel but very few of any of the other pears varieties. With great sadness we must tell you that Julia Philip passed away in February of this year. She was 92 years old and managed and lived at Philip Orchards til the end. The farm continues under family management. We look forward to seeing you here again this harvest. The Philips
