Entering Farmer 20158
My husband and I own a licensed winery and produce an elegant lineup of ciders made from locally sourced apples. Over the past 3 years, we've been managing a 1-acre orchard of cider-specific varieties and we use apples harvested from that site exclusively for one of our product labels. Additionally, we've taken several courses through Penn State Extension on the foundational principles of starting a fruit tree business as well as cider startup workshops.
Our goal is to incorporate our own orchard into our lineup of products. We'd like to have an orchard site where we will be responsible for all aspects from variety selection to daily maintenance.
Our preference would be to stay in Chester County but for the right situation, would consider Berks or Lancaster Counties. Looking for 1-10 acres.
