FOR THIS YEAR 2013
"A Personal Note Of Thanks"
This has been, unless something miraculous happens, and I do believe in miracles, Raven Hill's last apple season. And I want to take this opportunity to thank ALL of you who have visited here and contributed to the magic of this place, by your presence, laughter, smiles, and warm comments. I have met so many wonderful people, shared ideas, and seen children go from infant carriers to running around the orchard. It has been my privilege to be a part of all of this! Thank You.
I am putting this out there on the hope that there is someone who has the means, or who knows someone who has, and believes that this place should go on. If wanted, I am willing to show anyone the ropes. Think of what will be lost if all of these trees are cut to make house lots.
I know this is the eleventh hour, but, as I said I do believe in miracles, (I see them every day), So.....
The latest info is that the orchard is scheduled to be auctioned on Dec. 5th. I am going to try to negotiate an extended date, but I don't know yet. If anyone has any questions about the property, please call, and leave a message. My cell is 468-0642 same as below
Thanks for visiting, and for your patience. This year, 2013, has been a great apple season. Thanks to all who came out! There are still apples out there, and for the next week or so, I will be open by appointment. If you want to get some last minute apples call and leave a message
call Stephen for more info...(207) 468-0642
Welcome to Raven Hill Orchard, to what I hope to be a bright spot on the landscape. The farm is very old, and as such brings with it a connection to another time. I have tried to capture this connection by creating a cozy atmosphere reminicent of times past, and in the food, made right here from scratch; organic (when possible) and local (when possible).
Think of Raven Hill Orchard for your next special event..

....We now have our own free range chicken eggs. The bakery is open and we are taking orders for breads, cookies, pastries, anything we make, as well as special requests. We love a challenge. Just ask. The coffee is always on and we can make anything from great hot chocolate to lattes, espressos, fruit smoothies, or frozen coffee drinks, and a Raven Hill exclusive: The Smokey Maple Macchiato. Wander about the orchard or hike Ossipee Hill. Finish off with a hot, or frozen drink to go, or linger and relax in our cozy loft.
...GREAT COFFEE PASTRIES AND GOODIES....
Come and See Us
Our home was built in 1793 and our goal is to recreate the best of the flavor and feelings of that long ago time. Enjoy good for you and good tasting food made from scratch with organic ingredients. Walk the orchard or sit by the fire. Please visit us and stay a little or a long while. We will be pleased to see you.
We are happy to be the proud caretakers of a certified organic orchard where we grow 30+ varieties of apples. We have 10+ varieties in cold storage - available as long as they last. We use our organic apples to make many of our baked goods. We offer our own “untreated” cider as well as UV treated cider pressed from our organic apples. At the end of the apple season we freeze a large quantity of cider so we can offer it throughout the winter months.
