Everyone is talking about the upcoming solar eclipse. The rare celestial event will be passing over North America on April 8. The next one won't occur for another 20 years.

Although the Hudson Valley isn't in the direct path for totality, it will still be an amazing event as the moon will block about 95% of the sun.

Barton Orchards is a family-owned 175-acre apple orchard and vegetable farm that has been owned by the Barton family for over 40 years, currently owned and operated by Peter Barton.

Barton Orchards was founded as a wholesale apple farm in the late seventies by Bruce and Rose Barton. Its first couple of years of operations and sales came from the Apple Core farm stand. By the early nineties, Barton Orchards opened to the public and became one of the first pick-your-own apple orchards in the Tri-State area.
