The Orchard

Welcome to our orchard!

Highland Orchards, located between Downingtown and West Chester in West Bradford Township, is proud to be an active Farm in beautiful Chester County, PA.  We grow a wide variety of crops, including Rhubarb, Strawberries, Sweet Cherries, Sour Cherries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Peaches, Sweet Corn, Pumpkins and Apples.  The harvest season is over for 2019, but there is lots of farm work to do before the next crop is ready.  Our winter and early spring will be filled with jobs including: pruning, cultivating, planting, mulching, weeding, and thinning.

 

Our farm market offers many fresh, locally produced items and our Bakery. Highland Orchards offers Pick Your Own Fruit in season from Mid-May through late October. Please check out our Pick Your Own page for more details!

Seasoned mixed firewood and applewood is available in quantities from small bundles up to full cords.  You may pick up in store or schedule a delivery.  Delivery fee will be charged based on distance.

Fun for the family!

“I have become a regular here. The farm market offers fresh produce including bio stuff. They have a wonderful bakery as well. And, if you want to pick your own corn or fruit, you can ride out to the fields. There is a picnic area with fenced in goats and other animals to feed. I imagine this would be a wonderful place to pick out pumpkins for Halloween. there is also a snack bar which I have not tried. Keep this in mind for a weekend outing as well as an excellent source for corn, tomatoes and more!”

Consider investing in a CSA membership for 2020!

Highland Orchards West Chester offers a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Gift Card Program. You may purchase your CSA card in our Farm Market and enjoy great benefits year round!   During the winter months while we are planning, pruning and planting for the next season we offer a special 10% discount on any CSA card purchased between December and May 1st! This means if you purchase a $300 CSA gift card you will save $30 immediately!

As a CSA card holder you will  receive special discounted prices on Highland’s own Pick Your Own, and all other discounts we offer can be combined with the CSA discounts. Your CSA card can also be used on fresh in season produce, or any other great items offered in our Farm Market and Bakery.  

The Highland Orchards CSA gift card may be used throughout the entire growing year, and is reloadable at anytime. Once you have used all your CSA funds, your benefits expire. Also, please note that the CSA card benefits do expire at the end of the year purchased. The card will then revert to a standard gift card until the balance has been depleted.

“This is a great place to go with young children. They have a nice but small playground, goats that you can feed and pet (25 cents for a handful of corn) and they decorate outside for the kids based on the season. You can pick your own fruit too. Make sure you stop in the store and get their famous apple cider donuts, apple cider and in season fruits and veggies. You won’t make it back to the car without having a donut. They are the best!”
