Located in the hills above the village of Putney, VT, Green Mountain Orchards is one of Vermont's largest apple orchards and is managed by the Darrow family.
Four generations of the Darrow family have farmed the hills that make up Green Mountain Orchards.
We grow primarily apples and blueberries for the wholesale market and boast over 125 acres of apples in production and nearly 18 acres of blueberries.
We also grow raspberries, peaches, pears, plums, pumpkins and Christmas trees!

Green Mountain Orchards was started in 1914 by William H. Darrow Sr. who was born and raised in Chester, VT. He purchased a small hillside farm in Putney, Vermont and began planting apples and other horticultural crops immediately.
We grew in production and acreage over the next 75 years until the 1990's when the apple market tumbled and many New England orchards went out of business. Green Mountain Orchards cut its acreage by nearly 50% in the late 90's as a result.
Efficient management and the development and diversification of a retail business and pick your own business has allowed us to stick around. Hopefully for another 100 years!
