Pietree Orchard grows great local food and works to create a strong local community. The McSherry family established the orchard about seventy-five years ago, and then the King family purchased the orchard in 2007 to keep this land a working orchard and farm.

 

They grow apples, strawberries, blueberries, peaches, plums, nectarines, peas, green beans, tomatoes, flowers, and pumpkins. The Farmstand has  fresh fruits and vegetables, cider donuts, pies, pastries, savories, and, during apple season, fresh-pressed cider, and brick-oven pizza. The 67-acre sugarbush provides maple syrup.
