North Chester Orchard

Allen & Jane LeBrun 
Chester, Maine
Our six acre orchard overlooking the Penobscot River provides u-pick apples and pumpkins in a most beautiful setting. Come and enjoy a fall outing at our orchard.  

Orchard News (updated 9/23/17) 
The weather has challenged us this year with a hail storm on June 28th and very little rain in July and August (3.33" in my rain gauge in Chester!). The hail made dimples in some of the apples, but by irrigating the trees with water from our pond they have filled out nicely.

U-Pick Only - We provide you with a sturdy apple bag at no charge that you fill with any apple variety that is ready for picking. Mix varieties or pick all of the same. Pick the perfect bag of apples. It's fun and the prices are very reasonable.

Apple Available:
Macs - Currently picking
Cortland & Macoun - End of September. Stay tuned.
Honeycrisp - We pick these and have them available in bags in early October.

Prices: We are keeping our apple prices the same low price as last year. This helps our customers to have an affordable family outing and we make enough to stay in business. Prices are:
Half peck (about 10 lbs.)            $7.00
Half bushel (about 20 lbs.)       $12.00
Pumpkins - any sizes                 $3.50
Honey - Pint jar                          $8.00 

Hours: Sunday to Friday: Noon to 5:00
             Saturday; 9:00 to 5:00

Pumpkins: All pumpkins are u-pick and all of them are only $3.50 each. The dry weather has prevented them from getting as large as last year, but they still look very good.

Honey: We are sold out.

Apple picking is a wonderful family outing. Dwarf trees are easy picking even for the youngest apple pickers.

Have a picnic! Tables are available overlooking the Christmas trees and the field and woods beyond. It is so beautiful.
