Our orchard was started in 1996 when our son Lee planted 100 trees including Haralson, Northern Lights, and Honey Crisp; all developed by U of M, and as it turned out, great choices on Lee's part. Over the years, the family added about 1,700 trees including Zestar, Gala, Chestnut Crab, Honey Gold, Cortland Empire, Macintosh and others totaling 16 varieties all of which can be seen on our web site with approximate dates of availability. Last year over 1400 trees produced fruit. We use integrated pest management trying our best to have the "cleanest" apples possible understanding that the only thing worse than a worm in an apple is a half a worm🍎🐛
