As one of the oldest continually operating orchards in Vermont, we take pride in growing over 175 varieties of Eco-Certified apples, peaches, pears, plums, cherries, nectarines, and berries while carefully stewarding the land.
Built in the early 1800s, the iconic bank barn at Douglas Orchards overlooking Lake Champlain needs your support. With a rich history, from housing milking cows to storing vital farm equipment, this landmark has stood tall for two centuries.
Now, after years of active use, the barn requires a 2-phase restoration to ensure it stands strong for another 200 years. Phase 1 begins in Spring 2024, involving lifting the barn, excavating a new foundation, and reinforcing structural support timbers. Phase 2 will restore its former beauty.
We invite our local community, orchard visitors, and history enthusiasts to be part of a modern-day ‘barn-raising.’ Your contribution, big or small, will make a lasting impact.

1998 was the year 27-year-old Bill Suhr purchased 60 acres of orchard in Shoreham, Vermont. At the time, his motivation and initiative to live off the land overshadowed the fact that apple growing and fruit farming were not in his realm of knowledge.
Today, Champlain Orchards manages 300 acres of fruit trees and strives to remain a vital part of our local food system.
