Heirloom Apple Club
So many apples, so much fun
For over 20 years, the Queener Farm has delivered the best heirloom apples to many of Portland’s top chefs – now you too can enjoy some of them.
We are now accepting members for our 2019 season. This will be our fifth season of delivering directly to apple lovers all over the Willamette Valley via our apple club.
We’re looking forward to an amazing season. Our collection of over 100 apple varieties is expanding with new varieties every year. From the plum shaped, sweet, little Centennial crab apples to the big flavored Belle de Boskoop to the lime spritzer, Alkemene and the spicy Esopus Spitzenburg they are amazing and fun. All the boxes include the stories for each apple variety, because the history can be almost as fun as the wild array of apple flavors.
We have two apple club box sizes:
Sampler boxes that include 3-5lbs, delivered eight times per season. These have the widest selection apples and will include between 60 and 70 varieties this year.
Family boxes that are 15lbs each, in seven deliveries and total over 100lbs for the season. The boxes arrive every other week during the heart of the apples season. The family boxes will feature between 40 and 50 varieties this year.
To purchase either box size use the buttons below, “add to cart” and then fill out the form that will appear after you click the “add to cart” button. Once you complete the form the cart appears in the top right of the page in the grey bar. Click on it to finish the process.
