Ontelaunee Orchards, Inc. has been an active orchard since the 1920s. The orchards cover approximately 1000 acres. We grow many varieties of apples, peaches, strawberries, blueberries and sweet and sour cherries.
The fruit is harvested by hand much similar to the way it was in the 1920s. Hand harvesting of apples has been aided by the advent of dwarf trees where almost all the fruit can be reached without using ladders.
