Philip Orchards

Pick your own, pick the best!

Claverack, NY 12513 - (518) 851-6351

Philip Orchards Opens on Sept. 4, 2015. The Orchards will be open daily from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm throughout the harvest season, ending in late October.


WE HAVE A BUMPER CROP OF ALL VARIETIES. McIntosh and Cortland are both overset, so ask for the best spots if you prefer large fruit. And NEW THIS SEASON: we will give you a recipe every week for using each variety as they ripen. Kitchen test them and those you like you can keep as your own Apple Cook Book.

  • PEARS SHOULD BE PICKED BFORE THEY RIPEN. When a pear cuts easily with a table knife, it is ready to eat. Most pears are eaten fresh, but all can be cooked. Just add a little sugar, lemon juice and grated ginger.
  • All varieties will be available after the date we open and the orchards will stay open for pick your own until the end of October.

    -- The Philips.
