Orchard is a free, open source, community-focused content management system written in ASP.NET platform using the ASP.NET MVC framework. Its vision is to create shared components for building ASP.NET applications and extensions, and specific applications that leverage these components to meet the needs of end-users, scripters, and developers.
Orchard is delivered as part of the ASP.NET Open Source Gallery under the OuterCurve Foundation. It is licensed under a New BSD license, which is approved by the Open Source Initiative (OSI). The predecessor of Orchard was Microsoft Oxite.
Orchard is currently in active community-driven development. The project includes an extensibility model for both modules and themes, a dynamic content type system, ease of customization, localization and more.
The project is mainly managed by the Orchard Steering Committee and contributors who were proposed and elected by the community.
