Welcome To Liberty Orchard in Vermont
Liberty Orchard is a family owned, pick your own orchard located in beautiful Brookfield Vermont. We specialize in Liberty and five other new disease-resistant varieties. While not organic, these new varieties allow us to significantly reduce the use of agricultural chemicals.
