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.
A nerd with a fruit tree obsession.
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.
The wife of a nerd with a fruit tree obsession.
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!
