At Orchard Country, farming isn't our job, it's our passion and our life. We are more than proud of our wonderful customers, who make themselves more like family. We love what we do, and we know you'll love it too!
Orchard Country Produce is a family-owned and operated, sustainable fruit and vegetable farm settled in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. We work diligently to provide fresh produce (vegetables, fruit, berries, meat, eggs, cheese, chicken) to those interested in a healthier lifestyle. Our variety is our customers' favorite aspect about our farm. Work on our farm includes raising beef, pork, poultry, baked goods, many fruits and vegetables, and even nuts and berries. Along with the farmers markets we attend, we also have a very strong CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. Meeting the numerous happy customers at the markets is one of our favorite things to do. In fact, many of them have become friends. Our farming practices attest to nature being fine just the way it is, so we spray only to the minimum of necessity. Tree fruits are sprayed for their protection while all vegetables and berries are unsprayed.
We raise many heirloom varieties of fruits and vegetables. We have many apple varieties including: Gala, Rome, Honey Crisp, Stayman Winesap, Black Twig, Rambo, Fuji, Pink lady, Gold Rush, Cameo, and Braeburn. We raise all our own chickens for great tasting, healthful food and also large brown eggs. We love giving farm tours and welcome folks to the farm for farm day events throughout the year and also for personal tours. So give us a call when you are in the area. We have stands are the Westminster Farmers Market in Westminster, Maryland and the East Columbia Library in Columbia, Maryland, the Farmer's Market at Department of Transportation on 3rd St Washington DC, and Fairfax Community Market in Fairfax, VA..
We have farm stands are National Geographic Society in the Courtyard in Washington DC; St Luke's Episcopal Church on Fort Hunt Rd, Alexandria VA; Wood Lake Towers, Fall Church, VA; River Towers, Alexandria, VA, and Belle View Condos, Alexandria, VA.
We have over 20 acres of fruit trees and 1000 blueberry, blackberry and raspberry bushes. We offer many different varieties of apples including Honey Crisp. We have many heirloom tomatoes, raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries, salad greens, and eggplant. We make our own jams and jellies from our fruit and we make apple cider every fall. We have eggs from our cage-free flock of chickens. We also have great pork from our own pigs and broiler chickens.

We did a half-share all through spring-summer-fall in 2010, picking up at the DoT farmers market.
I've missed it ever since. The value was good and kept me on budget through a lean year with our young daughter.... [more]
We tried a CSA for the first time this year, based on the recommendation of friends who were already repeat customers of Orchard Country Produce. We chose the full 21 weeks, and a half share for the two of us.... [more]
