 Fruit Trees

Prices to be determined

We offered Gold Rush and Enterprise Apple Trees again this Spring, as well as Starking Delicious Pear and Bartlett Pear.  These Apple Trees come from Stark Bro's and are high quality nursery trees.  Caliper - 7/8" Approx. Height - 5-7'

These trees should be used for conservation purposes for wildlife and insect pollination.  They should not be planted on CRP acres.

We appreciate the orders so that we are able to secure the best trees available. Contact our office to get in your order.
