Our Story

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb

Owl's Head Orchard started over 40 years ago as a gift to a neighbor. We bought him a bunch of apple trees, had a bunch leftover, so we planted them, and then kept planting them, adding different varieties with each year.


As the orchard evolved, it became a playground, laboratory, machine shop, and outdoor education for the grandkids. They helped make the applesauce, interacted with the wild life, came up with entrepreneurial exploits of their own, and spent most of their time at Owl's Head outside learning about the natural world.

Now the grandkids have all grown up and left the Owl's Head nest and I've inherited the orchard back, so now I'm offering a seasonal CSA so that I can share this orchard with you and together we can keep it going.
