We are a family run orchard employing local people. This is a real working farm, where the fruit is grown on site. We utilize Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to provide you with high quality fruit with minimal sprays. We monitor our orchard regularly for pests by setting out pheromone traps to catch certain insects and only spray when the number of specific pests in the traps exceeds the threshold. Mark monitors apple leaves for insects and diseases. Our weather station monitors conditions that are favorable for disease development. Mark uses this information along with the stage of fruit development during the year, to make decisions on how to manage pests in the most environmentally friendly way. We strive to take care of this beautiful farm, so it can be producing delicious fruit for generations to come.

Visit Mark at St Paul Farmers Market on Saturday mornings May - October. Check out the St. Paul Farmers Market website for free light rail or Metro bus passes on Sat. AMs to get to the market.
