B.W. Bishop & Sons, Inc. is a family-owned and operated farm corporation, doing business as Bishop’s Orchards. The farm was started in 1871 by Walter Goodrich Bishop who engaged in general farming including dairy, vegetables and ice. His son, Burton Walter Bishop, joined him and expanded the business. In 1909, they set out the first commercial orchard. Burton’s sons, Arthur F. and Charles R., joined with their father in 1918 and continued to set out more orchards on land purchased in 1920 and 1926. Generations 3-7, expanded the business by adding a seasonal retail market (at the present location), pick your own fruits and other crops, bakery, winery (including a 25-foot wine bar), and a second location located on Rt. 17 in Northford.
