Owls Landing grows over 20 varieties of apples which ripen at various times from late July through late October. With more offerings to choose from, our customers may find a new favorite apple! Large quantities of apples for cider making are also available . We will help you with selecting for your special blend.

We are committed to sustainable farming practices including the planting of full-size trees which take longer to produce fruit but will hopefully be still producing for our grandchildren and their children!

Apple Trivia

Source NY Apple Growers

Pilgrims planted the first U.S. apple trees in the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

A standard-size apple tree starts bearing fruit 8-10 years after it is planted. A dwarf tree starts bearing in 3-5 years.

Apple trees can be grown farther north than other fruit trees because they bloom late in spring, minimizing the chance of frost damage.

Apples are the second most-valuable fruit grown in the United States; oranges are the first. (Source: USDA Economic Research Service)

Newton Pippin apples were the first apples exported from America in 1768, some were sent to Benjamin Franklin in London.
