Any organic apple picking in central CT?

Here's another apple picking post! :)

Anyone know of any pick-your-own orchards that offer organic choices? I've yet to come across one.

Thanks in advance for any help.

    1. I can't personally vouch for these guys, but I ran across this while looking for something else. I'd call first to make sure they're still in business etc.
