Paying It Forward
Pietree Orchard was established in 2007 when Tabitha and Stephen King purchased the orchard from the McSherry Family. Tabitha and Stephen used to bring their family to pick at McSherry’s, enjoying the apple picking overlooking the beautiful White Mountains. Keeping Pietree an active orchard is their dream of making it possible for area families to continue making memories on the top of the hill and eating delicious local fruit.
First Things First
We focus on fruit first, especially berries, peaches, and apples. Recognizing a desire in our area for more local food production, we have added a greens program and a wood-fired pizza oven, as well as pressing sweet cider in season. Pietree also produces our own maple products.
A Little Something Extra
We continue to explore and try out new products. Sometimes in fruit farming those explorations can take years to bear abundant, delicious fruit. Some of our growing areas include raspberries, plums, European and Asian pears and what we can sustainably grow in vegetables.
It Takes a Community
All of us here at Pietree are glad to be part of our local network of food producers, producing forage crops like hay, vegetables, and fruit. We hope you will visit us, experience what’s new this year and what’s familiar from years past and continue to invest in nourishing a resilient local food community.”
