Before George Washington was born. Before the Declaration of Independence was conceived. Before the American Revolutionary War was fought..... there was the Orchards of Concklin! Three hundred years and eleven generations later, the Orchards of Concklins is reputed to be the 8th oldest family business in the United States.
Today, they continue the tradition of harvesting 20 variety of apples as well as, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, currents, gooseberries and cherries, then mid-summer peaches, plums, nectarines, corn and tomatoes which is followed by two months of apple and pumpkin picking. The farm never stops; apple cider, award-winning apple cider donuts, pies, cookies and cakes are in production all year long. And they bring their fruit to you at 20 tri-state farmer's markets including, Rockland and Westchester.
