Dwight Miller Orchards is a family-owned and operated eighth-generation farm and orchard in Dummerston, Vermont. Read and Malah Miller, along with son Will, work with local employees to grow, harvest, market, and deliver apples and other fruits and produce. We make our maple syrup and press fresh, sweet cider here on the farm. We make apple cider vinegar here, too. When growing fruit we proudly rely on organic methods and materials, which is not a common practice is the Northeast. We also employ a growing practice we refer to as “Clean Fruit” which you can learn more about here.
Our farm-stand is open year-round for crops in season. We currently offer pick-your-own apples! We’ve got apples and pears already picked and set to go, too. Our Vermont maple syrup is available at the farm, along with small-batch jams and jellies, honey, fresh eggs and our own pasture-raised pork. Homemade pickles hit the shelves in late August and never last long enough (still currently in stock!).
Find our products at retailer partners throughout Vermont and Massachusetts, and visit us at the Brattleboro Farmers’ Market on Saturdays, May through October, in West Brattleboro, VT.
We are proud to be the only orchard in the Northeast using only allowed organic practices and materials while growing our apples. The climate in this area makes that a very difficult achievement. If you’re curious about the details, you can view our at-harvest test results, here. For reference, here is a helpful online resource for what is found on a conventional (non-organic) apple.
