Lost Nation Orchard

at Heartsong Farm

Working the land leads to love of place, so true for Nancy and Michael on their family homestead in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.


Welcome To Our Farm!

You have reached Nancy and Grace Phillips, the folks who write about healing plants, organic apples, and fungal friends. Michael, apple grower extraordinaire, passed on from this earthly orchard in late February, 2022. Plans for this year's harvest are currently under revision. 

Here at Lost Nation Orchard we grow over a hundred varieties of apples available for sale in northern New Hampshire. You'll learn all about our healthy apples and cider doings by opening the orchard portal above. This quick text link in turn will get you on our orchard mailing list for weekly varietal updates throughout the fall harvest season.

Michael books continue to engage and inform people seeking insights to growing healthy fruit can be found here. A brief reflection on the writing life is here. Like minded growers carry on Michael's research  at the Holistic Orchard Network, where a group of experienced consultants can be found. Those opting for tomfoolery can listen to recent podcast interviews.

Check out our marketplace to order books and apple products. Much here is a work-in-progress as we esvolve our farm-based cidery and other new ventures. Be sure to check out Nancy's wellness website below for herbal classes and women's retreats.

We're honored to be on this journey with you!

Mycorrhizal Planet will Rock You

Michael Phillips shares green man ways to grow healthy through biological alchemy in his latest book, Mycorrhizal Planet. Learning about symbiotic fungi and healthy plant metabolism will make you a better earth steward. Embrace the 'Nondisturbance Principle' and learn regenerative practices for the farm, garden, orchard, forest, and landscape. We all need to catch this mycelial wave and work towards a tomorrow for generations to come.


Michael Phillips's The Holistic Orchard is a seminal work, to be compared with Sir Albert Howard and J.I. Rodale's classic books on soil and organic gardening. This is deep horticulture at its best, showing just what we must do to orchard sustainably and ecologically.

Cider Press Shares

Lost Nation Orchard is looking for 'cider press shareholders' to make a modest investment in local agriculture. Essentially we're forming a membership-based cider club for those who wish to drink real (unpasteurized) cider. What are the odds of finding that kind of support in the North Country? Production will not begin in 2022 as originally planned, but will likely commence in 2023. Under those circumstances, your interest and support is appreciated.


Regenerative agriculture will thrive when we embrace how Nature does health.
Michael Phillips, Lost Nation Orchard


Herbal Happenings

The plant medicine side of our farm has evolved towards direct relationship with Nancy as a warm and generous teacher. Healing herb progams and radiant women retreats can be found at Heartsong Farm Wellness. Please ask her about personal and group coaching options. Our land abounds in green plants and natural remedies, which we recognize as essential to a healthier life.
