Growing organic apples in New England can be challenging and requires extensive knowledge of horticulture, disease and arthropod management, soil health, economic planning and strategic marketing.
Our goal is to share the authors' experiences and knowledge about organic apple production in New England through this Guide. It is not our intent to reinvent the wheel, but to give commercial growers a multimedia resource about the challenges and opportunities of growing apples organically. We aim also to connect growers to the endless information available through other universities, researchers, and growers.
