Another sign Spring has finally sprung in Central New York, despite what Mother Nature says - North Star Orchards in Westmoreland, New York is open for the season.

The farm market and bakery on Route 233 kicked off the season April 21, but someone must have forgotten to tell Mother Nature.

There's more to choose from this year in an new, expanded building. Over the winter, crews were working to expand the farm market, adding additional green houses, more room for shopping inside the store, as well as parking and sidewalk improvements.

• NYS Aged Cheese

and so many more locally produced products

North Star Orchards in Westmoreland is open daily 8 AM - 6 PM.

North Star Orchards is more than just a family market. It's a way of life for George Joseph and his children, that began in 1986 with a small roadside stand. Today they specialize in fresh, top quality, New York State produce along with everything you need for your yard and garden.

Behind the store is an almost 200 acre Orchard Joseph bought more than 3 decades ago and turned it into fields of fruit, vegetables and evolving beauty, including tulips, lots and lots of tulips.

In May, you can take a walk to remember, through a field of tulips. North Star Orchards opens their property for scenic walks through the blossom filled apple orchard to the cut-your-own tulip field. "To be in an orchard when it’s in full bloom, it’s illuminating," says George Joseph.
