We are a small family farm in our sixth year of operation.  

Chris grew up on his parents orchard in Pennsylvania and received his degree in horticulture from Penn State University.  He has worked as a grower at a 15 acre greenhouse in Maryland, a passionate apple tree grower, pruner and eater.  He now works as a carpenter in our off season.  Doing everything from building homes from scratch to tiling shower stalls (and everything in between).

   

Anna Maunz has apprenticed on various farms from the west coast to the east coast and ran a successful vegetable CSA in Pennsylvania serving inner city Baltimore .  Throughout the year, Anna attends women during their pregnancies and births through her business: birth roots & now as a junior midwife with Sacred Birth Midwifery.

 

Our sons Caleb and Tristan love to play in the dirt and grow!
