Appleland is a family-owned apple orchard, spanning three generations of the Espantman lineage.
The orchard continues to be a family run business. George and Kaye (first generation) still like to be involved in the business.
George enjoys interacting with customers at the market and Kaye helps with the paperwork.
For more than twenty years, the field and wholesale operations were managed by their son-in-law, Edwin Bares.
Two of Edwin’s sons, Nick and Jacob Bares, became part owners of the orchard in 2017, creating Appleland, LLC. and carrying on the family tradition for a third generation.
The fourth generation spends a lot of fun times with their parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and cousins at the orchard and loving every minute!
We are hopeful the fourth generation will include a future orchardist to carry on the Appleland orchard business.
