About our Orchard
Nestled amid the rolling hills of
picturesque Woodstock Hill, Connecticut is Woodstock Orchards LLC.
While growing up on his family orchard, Harold R. Bishop was
influenced to follow his dreams and purchase his own orchard. Harold
graduated from UConn's College of Agriculture in 1957 and in 1958
purchased the well established orchard from H.M. Woodbury. At that
time, the orchard produced apples, peaches, pears and plums.
1998, an LLC was formed with Harold, Douglas and Donna Young as
partners. Douglas had worked the orchard and brought diversity to
the orchard since 1975. The farm has diversified growing
blueberries, trellis apples for pick your own, it's own field and
greenhouse vegetables, pumpkins, hardy mums and fresh, sweet apple
cider. The orchard continues to focus on a retail you pick type of
operation to allow customers to enjoy the farm family experience.
Our Woodstock Orchards LLC family pride ourselves with working hard
to grow high quality fruit and produce with an increased emphasis on
the retail side of the business. New to the orchard business is
Douglas and Donna Young's son, Eric who has taken a special interest
in the family business. Eric has completed college with Suny
Cobleskill majoring in crop production and soil science.
