Description

Interested in starting a home or commercial orchard? Join us as Al and Jean Fuoroli, the owners of Elwood Orchard dive deep into the process of owning and operating an organic orchard. Covered topics will include how to get started, potential challenges that you may face in your orchard as well as the benefits of choosing disease resistant tree varieties. Hope to see you there!


Elwood Orchard is a USDA certified organic apple orchard run by Jean and Al Fuoroli in North Scituate. The orchard is home to over 1,000 fruit trees, including apples, peaches, nectarines and Asian pears. The orchard also grows gourmet garlic, pumpkins, winter squash and flowers during the season. The orchard became certified organic in 2012, and since then has grown significantly in size.
