There are a number of good sites on the web that deal with apples, orchards, and agriculture in Maine. Here are a few of our favorites.
Information about all different types of farms and farmers markets throughout Maine. This site is run by the Maine Department of Agriculture, Food and Rural Resources.
"The Maine State Pomological Society, a nonprofit organization incorporated in 1873, is comprised of apple orchards throughout the state dedicated to strengthening the sector as well as the agricultural industry in Maine." This site has lots of general information about apples as well as about Maine orchards.
"The New England Apple Association is a nonprofit, grower-funded organization charged with education and promotion of New England apples using the brand-name New England Apples."
This is our own guide on the equipment and techniques for successfully pruning apple trees. Includes several videos.
An excellent site on Integrated Pest Management run by the Cooperative Extension at the University of Maine. Includes information on What is IPM?, pest forecasts, weather reports tailored for farmers, as well as fact sheets and publications about apples and care of home apple tree plantings.
