WHY  US ?

-We have been growing fruit here in northern Vermont for decades. Walden Heights Nursery and Orchard is a certified organic orchard containing thousands of fruit trees, bush and vine fruits including an apple arboretum of over 500 varieties. We have extensive knowledge and experience in plant physiology including propagation, growing, pruning, and soil science. We are very strict with plant selection and techniques, making sure our customers have solid success. We will not encourage planting stock that is marginal in our climate or too fussy to get reliable food from. In short we are a no nonsense mentor, dedicated to help people grow healthy food to make a living, or to feed their family. Most importantly we a small local business of farmers, available to all our clients yearlong to help them succeed. 

-There is no scale too large or small. We can accommodate commercial orchards, or the smallest backyard berry patch. This can mean rescuing a delapidated orchard, setting up a grape trellis, or planting a few berry bushes. We can do part or all of the project. We can train you while we work. We can keep things in order while you are away. Techniques can include organic growing, permaculture principles, or just run of the mill growing.

 Our family works hard to understand all of the aspects of organic fruit growing in our northern Vermont climate. Our experiences and research has given us a wealth of information that we share with those who hope to produce fruit for their own family.

Our mission is to help our neighbors and customers grow their own food, and do so organically and sustainably. While most nurseries simply buy, mark-up and re-sell shipped-in stock, we are primarily farmers…growers of the fruit in our orchards and nearly all the species in our nursery.

Preservation of heirloom fruits, particularly apple germplasm is also very important to the farm. We grow more than 400 apple varieties and add to the diversity of our orchard each year, sharing new, old and interesting apple varieties with folks who are interested.
