Our History

Brackett Orchards is thought to be the oldest family owned and operated orchard in Maine. The original descendents settled Limington, Maine in 1783, and as soon as the land was cleared, apple trees were planted on a few acres. Manley Brackett is the eighth generation of Bracketts who still farm the land growing apples and many varieties of pumpkins and squash. On 75 acres of farmland, nine varieties of apples are grown, including the new and great tasting honeycrisp.

In the Fall, bring the family and pick your own fruit while you experience the tranquility and scenic beauty of our orchard. Pick your own apples starts in early September with hayrides on most weekends.

The farm store is open from mid-August through May, 7 days a week with hours from 8-6. In the Fall, it is well stocked with all apple varieties, pumpkins, squash, cider, potatoes, honey, jams and maple syrup.
