Bird of the Hand operates an organic plant nursery, organic apple orchard, self-serve farmstand and organic farm. The farm is a small farm (about seven acres) which supplies our local area with organically grown perennials, perennial herbs and flowering plants throughout the growing season, and apples and pumpkins during the fall. The farm is organically certified through Bay State Organic Certifiers and our products are USDA organically certified.
When in season, we have fresh organic apples available. Our main apple varieties are McIntosh, Cortland, and Red Delicious. We also have smaller quantities of other varieties. (Some are Heirloom) Roxbury Russett, Northern Spy, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Red Rome, Wealthy, and Criterion (available over the course of the season as they ripen). We also sell jelly & apple sauce.
