For more than 30 years, Anne and Chuck Geyer have worked cooperatively with other family farms growing exceptional fruit in the Mid-Atlantic growing region. Agriberry Farm provides direct support to those multi-generational farm families by helping to connect the bounty of their fields and orchards to a broader range of markets and CSA members. Here are some of our favorite multi-year Partner Farmers:
Adams County Nurseries, Aspers, PA

Adams County Nurseries, Aspers, PA

The Baugher Family

One of our longest running and most beneficial partnerships is with the Baugher family, owners of Adams County Nurseries, which recently celebrated it’s 110th anniversary.  These expert growers of nursery stock for orchards and back-yard enthusiasts all over the country specialize in varieties we love–the ones that taste the best!

They have extensive acreage in production to help ensure that their grafting material and root stocks are of the very highest quality.  When they have something ripe and ready for market, we go to their orchard and bring it back to our farm for sale or use in our kitchen.  We love that they don’t “over manage” their fruit production, and that we can get “run of the tree,” ungraded apples.
