Greetings From
Avalon Acres Orchard & Farm

Wendy and Mark Sheriff are the owners of Avalon Acres Orchard & Farm. Although Wendy and Mark met in Connecticut and were married in Massachusetts, Maine has always been a special place to them.  Wendy's family, the Annis's, lived in Maine for many generations dating back to the 1700s. Her father was born in Rockland. The family frequently visited a summer home in Thomaston and Wendy loved to listen to the many stories that were told about Maine. She always wanted to move to Maine. That dream was finally made possible by a loving, hardworking husband, three great children, a supportive family, and some really great friends that have helped them to re-establish their Maine roots.

Wendy and Mark, along with their children, Brandon, Matthew, and Caitlyn, now call Avalon Acres their home. The name Avalon was chosen for their farm as it's meaning is "Isle of Apples". This is an actual place in Glastonbury, England and it is reported that King Arthur was taken to there when he was mortally wounded and is supposedly buried there.

When the orchard was purchased it had 250 existing trees. Since then, over 60 more have been planted. In an effort to learn the best management practices regarding their orchard they went to "Apple School" taught by Dave Olmsted from Olmsted's Orchard in Charleston, Maine. Dave and Pat have been an enormous help and very supportive- THANK YOU!

So our history here in Maine is still young, but we have a lot of plans for the future. Our family roots are now back in Maine. Stop by and watch us grow!
