There’s nothing so wonderful as the crunch of a fresh-picked apple, and the fruit from Eco-certified orchards is as satisfying as it gets. Start with generations of experience and family stewardship, add the best northeast locations and varieties, and nurture all that with the most progressive, ecology-based growing practices possible, and you have some truly exceptional apples.
Eco growers are some of the most experienced fruit growers in the Northeast. They use ecology-based growing practices that promote soil and tree health, nurture pollinators, and protect biodiversity. Orchards are certified annually by the IPM Institute of North America and production protocols are reviewed each year by scientists and fruit growers to stay current with best practices and new research.
Our growers offer an extensive array of apple varieties from all over the Northeast. One of our great pleasures is reuniting people with long-lost varieties from their past, and introducing them to new favorites. Looking for flavor that rivals that long-lost childhood apple tree? Want to try that new variety everyone is talking about? Check out all the varieties of standard favorites and heirloom apples our network of Eco Apple growers offer.
All of Red Tomato’s apple growers are part the Eco Apple program, but not all orchards are certified every year. Orchards certified this season are shown to the right. Only fruit from certified orchards is sold under the Eco Apple® label.
