History

Each fall, fresh crisp Liberty, McIntosh and Macoun apples are picked and bagged daily and sold at a self-serve stand outside the Eric and Debbie Magnuson’s home off State Road in West Tisbury under the banner of Tiasquin Orchard. In banner apple years, Tiasquin Orchard apples are also sold at Alley’s General Store just down the road from the orchard, Morning Glory Farm in Edgartown, and Fiddlehead Farm in West Tisbury. Eric started the orchard as a hobby with 5 trees planted in 1973 not long after the couple married. Now, with approximately 100 apple trees, it’s become the largest apple orchard on the island, with some pear trees as well. Harvest starts in late August with the early apple varieties.
