In Harvard, MA, Community Harvest Project (CHP) operates 30 acres of apple and peach orchards on a 75 acre property. This property was gifted to CHP in 2014, and now allows us to donate over 100,000 lbs of apples annually to the hunger relief network. Over 13 varieties of apples and peaches are grown on the property. The primary volunteer season is apple picking August through October, but small groups of volunteers also work January through March to prune the apple trees. To visit our farm with a group to pick apples, please visit our Volunteer Page. To learn more about pruning, please email

CHP, in partnership with the Harvard Conservation Trust and Sudbury Valley Trustees, is working towards securing an Agricultural Preservation Restriction (APR) on this property. For more news and updates please visit our blog.
