Guide To Apple Orchards In Southern Maine

Apple picking season is upon us once again and Maine couldn’t be a better place to do it!  As you would expect there are many options for apple orchards (some don’t offer u-pick) so I narrowed down a list within and under an hour from the Cumberland County and Greater Portland area.  It’s always wise to call ahead and confirm availability as mother nature sometimes has different plans.

Do you know that there are 2,500 varieties of apples grown in the United States?  Only 100 are grown commercially though so don’t be hard on yourself for not knowing.  If we take it further, there are 7,500 varieties grown worldwide!  As a kid I thought there were only the varieties that my local supermarket made available.  It reminds me of the news, we get what they want to give us.  One of the many things I love about Maine is some local shops provide the public with varieties that aren’t the commercial norm.  This reinforces that there is a big world out there waiting for your exploration and discovery.  

Enjoy the season and bake lots of pie!
