About Us:

Beechwood Orchards is a fifth generation, family owned farm that has been operating in Adams County for over a century. The farm is currently being run by David and Tammy Garretson. In 2005 they were joined by their son, Shawn Garretson, after he graduated from Penn State with a degree in Horticulture. Last year Melissa Allen, their daughter, returned to the farm. She brought her two small daughters Isabelle (3 years) and Cammy (20 months) who have already begun to show an interest in agriculture.
Beechwood Orchards has always grown a large variety of tree fruits. We have recently been adding more small fruits, vegetables, and herbs to diversify our crops and provide a larger selection for our market customers.
We are members of Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture and practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to control disease and pests in the field. IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment.
Beechwood Orchards strives to practice sustainable agriculture and still be innovative at the same time. We plant cover crops, use crop rotation, control soil erosion, compost, and monitor both pest and beneficial insects in the fields. We have also worked closely with Penn State Fruit Lab over the years helping them to conduct research to benefit farmers and are currently doing a grape trial with them that consists of 12 different varieties of table grapes, grown on an acre of land. Within the next few years, you will be able to help us out with this by giving your opinion on the flavor of the different varieties. This spring we will also be planting an acre of high density apples on a trellis systen through Penn State.
In the future you can look for some new products from Beechwood Orchards. We will be planting red raspberries this spring in a high tunnel. This will allow us to extend the raspberry season and also provide you with a higher quality product. We are also looking into planting Hardy Kiwis in the near future. We select our fruits and vegetables based on taste tests. Many of these can be found on Slow Foods Ark of Taste. In our experience, taste is the biggest factor in customer satisfaction and in a lot of ways has influenced the crops and varieties that we grow.
