East Farm Apple Orchard

2097 Kingstown Road | South Kingstown, RI 02881

Each year, the East Farm demonstration apple orchard serves as a venue for service learning projects. URI Master Gardeners maintain the orchards which are harvested by community groups through educational field trips.
Orchard Pruning: This seasonal project (late winter/early spring) is designed to provide pruning maintenance of the unique crabapple and apple tree collections that exist at East Farm. Proper pruning techniques are taught to Master Gardeners, especially new recruits, and the end result is celebrated during the annual East Farm Festival held in May.
