We are a young postorganic apple orchard and open pollinated, non-GMO vegetable farm. We are currently in our eighth year and still learning and growing. Our primary focus is to serve our local community in the Frederick and Washington county area.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
We are now postorganic in our practices. For myriad reasons, we became disenchanted with the organic program, not the least of which was OMRI-approved manure sold as certified organic when it comes from CAFOs. So while we still follow the organic program rules, we do use our own chicken manure now without fear of reprisal. No, we won't be using Roundup or any of that scary chemical junk, but we will be using herbal sprays for pest and disease control using herbs grown on our land. :-)
Most of our fruit is currently brought in from Hollabaugh Brothers in Biglerville, Pennsylvania, while our orchard is maturing. Hollabaugh is a 5th generation, family-run farm approximately 50 miles to our north (near Gettysburg) that has very high quality, IPM/low spray fruit.
Whenever possible, we will offer our own postorganic apples, plums, pears, and blueberries. Maybe even some raspberries.
