McDougal Orchards is a diversified, seventh generation family farm in Southern Maine. We specialize in growing high quality apples for pick-your-own customers, our farm stand, the Sanford Farmers’ Market, and local wholesalers. You can find us a mile from downtown Sanford and close to the beaches and lakes of York County. Come explore the historic farmland and orchards, or stop in quickly for some ready-picked fruit in the barn. Capt. Jack is usually making fresh cider donuts out in the Donut Shack, too! Come visit our farm animals, spend time in our picnic area, build a woodland house in our fairy village, or get lost in our corn maze. We also offer miles of trails throughout the property for our visitors to enjoy an energetic hike or a leisurely stroll.
