About Us
Our first 1000 trees were planted in 2001 and started producing fruit in 2005. Today, we have over 3,000 semi-dwarf trees in our nine-acre orchard and over forty-five apple varieties!
We use a low-spray style of treating the trees called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). We track what kinds of harmful bugs are in the orchard and only spray for those specific bugs. Additionally, we use pheromone traps, a mating disrupter for the bugs. As a result, we do not need to blanket the orchard with a much stronger, generalized pesticide. We do not spray with any organophosphates.
