The best way to get first crack at tree sales, seasonal orchard tips, and educational workshops is our free monthly newsletter. You can also subscribe to the newsletter of our u-pick orchard and farm in Ithaca, NY, which gets sent weekly during the harvest season and goes quiet in the winter: Indian Creek Farm newsletter.
Although our farm on Trumansburg Road is open daily for much of the year, the nursery does not have a retail storefront, so if you need to visit the nursery, please contact us to arrange an appointment. Thank you! Our team is often working in the field and unable to accommodate drop-in visits. Local customers, we will contact you about when to pickup your orders during the annual spring shipping season.
