About Indian Creek Farm

Indian Creek Farm, "Ithaca's Orchard Playground," is our home farm. Cummins Nursery sits quietly on the back acres – long rows of sapling trees – while the fruit orchards, berry patches, and vegetable fields are buzzing with U-pickers during the harvest season.

We are one of the rare fruit tree nurseries that also runs a U-pick orchard and farm stand. So we get to see both sides of the fruit tree business – nursery and orchard – and you can ask us about our experience when you are ordering trees to start your U-pick orchard or local farm store.

You can visit the farm any day from June to November and pick whatever is in season. We grow apples, peaches, pears, plums, apricots, nectarines, strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, melons, squashes, okra, cucumbers, garlic, pumpkins, Brussels sprouts, flowers, and even fresh apple cider donuts. See the pokey old farm web site and get the popular farm newsletter – our "Fresh Crop Alerts" which are sent during the harvest season and quiet in winter.

Although the farm is open daily, 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.

As we say at the end of each Fresh Crop Alert...

"Hope to see you at The 'Creek."
