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.

    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.

    "High Hill Orchard - follows organic methods, Apples, pears, blueberries (check on the blueberries!), pumpkins, vegetables.
    170 Fleming Road, Meriden, CT, 06450. Phone: (203) 294-0276. July 2nd to September Sat/Sun 10-5 September to Thanksgiving Tues-Thursday 12-6, Sat/Sun 10-5 Thanksgiving to December 24th - Sat/Sun 10-5. Excellent apple and pear cider in fall. Some organic produce, some are low input. Hayrides in September and October. Visit our farm stand for our own fresh apple cider & vegetables."
