Holmberg Orchards, founded in 1896, is a 4th-generation family-owned, pick-your-own orchard and market. Located on…More the rural hills of Gales Ferry overlooking the Thames River, this local attraction is packed with ripe fruit, blooming flowers, friendly staff and families. Apples, pears and peaches are among some of the fruits available for picking. During the fall, the orchard offers hayrides along with seasonal produce like pumpkins, cornstalks and apples to create a fantastic seasonal outing.
Off Route 12, located at the base of the orchard, is Holmberg Orchard Market, open all year. This market is filled with gourmet and local specialty food items such as soups, cheese, produce, local honey, baked goods, hard cider and local wines. This is a cute store with a vintage feel.
