"Samascott Orchards is a family owned and operated farm that started in the early 1900’s in Kinderhook, New York. Initially a dairy operation, the farm developed into an orchard in the 1960s, starting with a pick-your-own business. Currently, we grow more than 72 varieties of apples, with hundreds of varieties of fruits, vegetables, and mixed livestock on 1,000 acres of land. Our livestock includes Angus cattle, pigs and chickens, which are all free-range, hormone and antibiotic-free.
We do not grow any GMOs (genetically modified organisms). We emphasize the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourage natural pest control through constant scouting, small plantings, diversity, use of cover crops and crop rotation.
The farm is currently operated by the 4th generation of family members. We plan to do everything we can to keep the farm, our land and our practices, healthy and safe for the future generations!"
