Farming Practices

Orchard Life

Amidst the rolling hills of Southern York County, PA, Brown's Orchards stretches across 200 breathtaking acres of rich scenic farmland. Brown’s grows & sells its own asparagus, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, sweet corn, nectarines, plums, apples, pears, and pumpkins. To keep the harvest coming year after year, we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM) methods. These farming practices limit the use of pesticides. We monitor each crop intently so we can make wise decisions about pest or disease control. Brown's Orchards are managed by Ray Dietrich.
