Visit the Farm

Orchard Ridge Farm is a u-pick orchard and farm store. We are open year round for food, grocery, and recreation. In the orchard, we have apples, blueberries, raspberries, and pears.

We bake donuts (yes apple cider year round!) and bagels fresh W-M. Other pastry items rotate through the case on a regular basis. During the fall, we have fresh and mulled cider. In addition to drip coffee, we also have an espresso machine and can serve you your favorite espresso drinks!

Our hot food menu is family friendly, but made fresh and delicious! We feature inspired, seasonal specials on our blackboard in the store. In addition to food, you are welcome to enjoy beer & wine while on property.

We are situated on 38 acres of hilly orchards and wooded forest in Gorham, Maine. We invite you and your family to come enjoy this beautiful landscape not only during u-pick seasons, but year round!


We are open daily for you to:

Pick high bush blueberries, apples, & pears.

Explore the property on our newly completed multi-use perimeter trail.

Play on our playset & around the farm.

Enjoy some tasty food and libations by the fire in our dining areas after an afternoon outdoor fun.

Relax knowing we are here to ensure you and your loved ones are in for a great day!

Visit our chickens, pigs, goats, and rabbits year round.

Dogs are not permitted on property April 1st-November 31st.

December 1st- March 31st: Leashed dogs are allowed on trails only. We do not permit dogs in the orchards or at events.
