Our Family

We're a young family of six (plus a lot of animals!) in south-central Pennsylvania. As of June 2017, we've opened a u-pick orchard and plant nursery in Mechanicsburg. Here's a little about us.

It started with just a few fruit trees given as a gift in 2009 and has blossomed into an orchard crammed with both conventional and odd fruit trees and bushes.

Since 2010 we've grown just about any fruit you can name: figs, pawpaw, cherries, peaches, plums, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, medlar, che, goumi, jujube, persimmons, pears, shipova, apples, roses (for hips), goji, pomegranate, currants, hardy kiwi, quince, and lingonberries all have found their space in the orchard at one point or another.

While commonly referred to as Mom or Tim's wife, I am equally as passionate about farming! When Tim and I were first married, I convinced him to help me build a small raised bed garden against our suburban home. Now seven years and six acres later, my "garden" is just a little bigger! I still maintain the claim that I am responsible for getting him into gardening :-). My passions also lie with my milk goats!
