McDougal Orchards is a diversified seventh (going on eigth!) generation family farm in Southern Maine specializing in the production of high quality apples for sale to pick-your-own and farm stand customers. We invite families of all ages to step back in time, slow down, relax and enjoy the farm’s healthy, high-quality agricultural products and low-impact recreational opportunities. Visitors will take home fresh, carefully grown produce, tired, happy kids, and an increased knowledge of, and appreciation for, this small pocket of agriculture in Springvale, Maine.
Customers pass through the dooryard of the historic farmhouse on their way to pick apples in the orchards behind the house, or stop to buy ready-picked fruit in the barn salesroom. We also offer fresh apple cider donuts, picnic areas, a fairy village, maze, wagon rides (weekends only) and more! Plus, there’s always a family member about to fill you in on the history of the place or how best to prune that old tree in your backyard. We hope to see you soon! We also offer miles of trails throughout the property for our visitors to enjoy an energetic hike or a leisurely stroll.
We have over 40 varieties of apples, and many heirloom varieties. During our season we have apple cider and Capt. Jack’s cider donuts. We also grow nectarines, peaches, plums, pears, raspberries, flowers, pumpkins and winter squash.
Our farm store has lots of local products like jams, jellies, pickles, maple syrup, honey, goat cheese, frozen pies and much more!
