The Whittier Fruit Farm has been owned and operated by the Russell family since 1974. Ray and Judy Russell quickly replaced the very tall and old apple trees with smaller trees which are ideal for picking. They also added other pick-your-own crops such as blueberries, plums, sweet cherries, and pumpkins. Soon their two sons, Dave and Mark, and their families joined the business.
Oops, we almost forgot to introduce Gobi and Tiger,the orchard guard dogs. Gobi and Tiger are two mixed-breed dogs, who live and work at Whittier Fruit Farm.
Gobi had been living at the Rochester dog pound, and Tiger had been abandoned. Now they are guarding young apple trees from deer and rabbits, patrolling 12 acres of trees. For two young dogs, it’s great work. .
Fresh homegrown fruits and vegetables are available in season at our family-owned and operated farm since 1974.
Unlike many fruit farms in the area, we have trees that are just the right height for a "pick your own" farm. You will find 32 different varieties of apples in a fairly compact area. You also can buy apples already picked in our store.
Watch for us at Farmer's Markets and for the farm opening early summer!
