Averill Farm



Since it was purchased in 1746 from the Native American Chief Waramaug, the Averill Farm has been family run. This 260-acre property is primarily a fruit orchard that specializes in growing apples and pears. The farm plants over a hundred different varieties of apples and pears throughout the year and about twenty of those are available for customers to buy as well as to pick. Their apples and pears are available for picking beginning mid-August and the farm’s orchard remains open seven days a week until Thanksgiving.


  • Averill Farm sells its own cider, jams, jellies, maple syrup, honey, donuts, and pies along with its apples and pears.
  • They travel to several different farmer markets within Washington to sell their fruit and other goodies.
  • The farm also grows and sells Christmas trees during the holiday season.
