At Chapin Orchard our mission is to produce high quality fruit and farm products using management practices that encourage a sustainable orchard environment.  Through careful and minimal use of pesticides, applied only when needed, we provide customers with healthy and good tasting fruit and cider. 

We also aim to further your enjoyment and experience of a visit to Chapin Orchard by offering a wide selection of Vermont farm products and crafts in our retail center.  We choose products that support working Vermonters, family farms, local businesses and the local economy.
