Dwight Miller Orchards

Map
511 Miller Rd., East Dummerton, VT 05346, United States

One of the largest certified organic farms in the Northeast, this orchard was also one of the first to undergo the process of switching from conventional to organic practices, in 1996. It was arduous, according to orchardist Read Miller, whose family has been farming the same land for eight generations—"since before Vermont was a state," he says.
What to Pick: Macouns (a cross between McIntosh and Jersey Blacks); Empires (a hybrid of McIntosh and Red Delicious); and Honeycrisps, a relatively new hybrid whose crispness and sweet-tart balance make it an ideal apple to eat raw.
Most Unusual Offering: A richly diverse array—including berries, other fruit trees, field crops, sugar bush, pigs, and chickens—all organically grown.
Bells & Whistles: A farm stand with house-made cider, maple syrup, and seasonal organic fruits and vegetables; a pen of piglets; horse-drawn wagon rides to the hill overlooking the Connecticut River.
