family owned orchard

We are a 300 acre, family owned orchard located in Wayne County, NY. Here at Abendroth’s Apple Ridge Orchard we take pride in producing a variety of delicious fruits including apples, peaches, sweet and tart cherries using the skills and techniques acquired at Cornell University and through international education and outreach.

ethical & efficient fruit farming

The farm is lead by brother and sister, Alec and Alicia Abendroth, who are both educated in Business and Horticulture, specifically fruit production, in Germany and the USA. Alicia is a graduate from both Geisenheim University and Cornell University with a focus in business and pomology, while Alec graduated from an in-depth fruit farming and management apprenticeship program in Germany. Both Alec and Alicia are trilingual, speaking English, German and Spanish. Together, they aim to produce fruit both ethically and efficiently, alongside their team of carefully selected and skilled orchardists from all around the globe. Their father, Robert Abendroth, both farmer and entrepreneur, is founder and head of Abendroth’s Apple Ridge Orchard.
