July through October
CLOSED ON SUNDAYS
The 2017 CSA membership contract is now closed. Middlefield Orchard offers a Winter CSA for both fresh and processed food, and for the regular season a fruit CSA, a vegetable CSA, and combination of fruit & vegetable CSA for the 2017 season. We look forward to serve you during the upcoming season.
Apple Season has started
Even though we will be picking berries until mid-October, our apple picking season is now upon us. Honeycrisp apples along with some of the mid-season apples are upon us.
Shannon Kirch, Cooperstown Farmers Market manager visited the orchard and wrote the following;
We offer a large variety of fresh vegetables throughout the season at our farmers markets and at the orchard.
If you or your family eat a lot of apples or process any apple products this is by far the least expensive way to go. The Rent-a-Tree program is not accepting any new contracts for the upcoming season.
Farm Safety Plan
A Farm Safety Plan is now implemented for any and all visitors to the orchard to enhance the safety of all concerned. Hand washing stations and instructions are easily located for your convenience.

CSA Customer comment:"The Middlefield Orchard CSA is a way to provide healthy food for your family while supporting our local farmers and region. All the produce and fruits are fresh, sweet and flavorful. Favorites of ours are the blueberries, rasberries and strawberries. Our family enjoys going out to the farm and hand-picking the raspberries, apples and pumpkins. Nate and I have done the math, and for the amount of produce and goods we receive it would be more than twice that at the store- and likely grown outside of our country and months old. You can bet we will be back for another summer and winter CSA again this year. Nate and Suzanne Furman
