Averill Farm

250 Calhoun St
Washington Depot, CT 06794

Averill Farm is a family farm, which has been operated continuously by the Averills since it was purchased in 1746 from the holdings of Chief Waramaug. For many years it was a dairy farm. Today, the 260-acre property is primarily a fruit orchard, but also produces hay and Christmas trees. The apples and pears are grown in the 30 acre orchard and are sold both as picked fruit and pick-your-own. Some 100+ varieties are grown, about 20 of which are available for customers to pick. We sell our own cider, apple cider donuts, cut flowers, and homemade the old-fashioned way, jams and jellies. We also sell locally-sourced pies, pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn, mums, maple syrup, honey, cheddar cheese, garlic, potatoes, some tomatoes, and gifts.
