Roy and Ruth Erb began farming in 1938, raising a variety of field crops and vegetables.
A few years later they planted the first orchards with apples and peaches, and added production of sweet corn, peas, beans, tomatoes, and potatoes.
In 1954, Roy built a temporary structure (pictured below) along the Lititz Pike in order to sell produce to customers.
This first stand was dismantled and removed from the site at the end of each season.
In 1960, a permanent structure began to take shape.
Further construction over the years gradually expanded the retail floor space, work areas, cooler facilities, and parking lot.
Our strawberry patch opens to the public in late May or early June and usually remains open for several weeks, depending on the weather.
The Pick Your Own (PYO) schedule is determined by weather and availability.
We offer tractor & wagon rides to the pumpkin patch to Pick Your Own Pumpkins as scheduled in September and October.
