Hurd Orchards

Welcome to Hurd Orchards

The first few baskets of strawberries have been picked in sweet anticipation of a lush and full harvest. 
It must be June!

Pick Your Own Strawberries
will begin Wednesday, June 13th

and we expect wonderful picking by the
Father's Day Weekend!

Nestled in the rich lake plains fruit region of
Western New York our farm is a part of the long fruit tradition and fruit culture that have so distinctly shaped our beautiful Orleans - Niagara area.

Our farm has been in our family for two hundred years. We produce a wide variety of fruits -
strawberries, raspberries of all colors,
sweet and sour cherries, peaches and nectarines,
plums and currants, blueberries
and blackberries and seventy varieties of apples.

Our flower fields and gardens provide us
with season-long color.
Our varieties span the most modern to very historic; ancient dark trunks and branches of
one hundred year old cherry trees
and the neat and crisp and elegant
narrow plantings of new apple orchards.

  Luncheons, dinner tastings and classes in our barn
are a inspired blending of flavors
- straight from the herb garden, berry patch
and orchard lane -
and a setting that is brimming
with flowers and spirit.
The big kettle in our jam kitchen bubbles all year with glorious preserves, and our bakery oven
scents of confections made with our harvest
from golden crusted apple pies
- to blueberry lemon cakes - to strawberry shortcake
and mouthwatering cherry tarts.

On our farm seasonality is exciting.
Though we are the same throughout,
each season is totally different:
June is strawberries and peonies and foxglove
and daisies along the daisy drive;
autumn is apples and fall raspberries, glowing leaves, apple pies and a glorious watercolor of
dahlias in burnished hues.
We find this seasonal change exciting.
The palate graduates, the colors change,
and indeed our farm activities move from beginning (planting) to end (final harvest).

At Hurd Orchards we cherish and express the things
that shape our beautiful fruit growing world
- history, horticulture, culture and folklore,
the beauty of flowers and gardens and landscape,
the wholesomeness of fresh produce and
handmade foods.

Series Luncheons

  Each month on our farm is so exquisite - and so individual. May is nothing like July which in turn is nothing like September.
Our series luncheon program is designed to encourage our guests and friends to visit our farm in as
many season as possible. And, we are deeply grateful to our regular guests - and so we want to offer you
something a little special.

Our Series Lunch Program includes five luncheons of your choice - one each in May, June, July
or August, September and October. 
This gives you five luncheons - and the fifth
luncheon is at less than half price! An additional charge will apply for our special luncheons.

In addition we offer to each series guest 10% off of purchases in our market on the day of the luncheon. AND might we suggest our harvest boxes to take
home after the luncheon?
