Additional Information

Description

We are currently a wholesale apple orchard with refrigerated storage and packing facilities. This year we are celebrating our 100th year anniversary as a family-owned farm. We employ H2A workers and are able to house them in a camp that can house up to 19 men attached to the farm. 

We are looking for someone to lease the farm for the foreseeable future. We would like to see it continue running as an apple orchard. We wholesale now to local grocery stores, markets, schools and farm stands. On the property there is also a self-service stand during the late summer and fall months. 

We have apples, peaches, pears and nectarines. Our biggest crop are our apples in a range of varieties; MacIntosh, Cortland, Macoun, Red Delicious, Yellow Delicious, Rome, Northern Spy, Ginger Gold, Zestar, Gala, Mutsu, Empire, Crimson Crisp, Goldrush and Spartan. This year we are also looking to plant 30 Honeycrisp trees.
