WHAT WE GROW

We take great pride in growing quality fruits and vegetables here at Evans Orchard and Cider Mill. We grow over 75 acres of fruits and vegetables each year, selling produce in our store, at the Scott County Farmer’s Market, and wholesale. Our crops are sprayed as little as possible and we take every effort to use as few chemicals as possible on our land. We have fed our family from this farm for many years and feel confident that our produce is safe, high-quality, and delicious.

We currently grow 23 different varieties of apples and press our own fresh apple cider in our Cider Mill on site. We make 20-25,000 gallons of cider per year using roughly 350,000 pounds of apples. That is 8,700 bushels of crushed apples! Our apple cider is sold in our store and at Good Foods Co-op in Lexington, Kentucky. We private label for many other orchards and businesses.
