Location: Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

We met Sidney and her mom at the 14th and U and Crystal City farmer's markets. We noticed their carefully arranged stand was always a beautiful oasis of ripe, local fruit. That impression has been borne out over a decade of eating their family’s fruit. Kuhn Orchards practices IPM (integrated pest management), using holistic methods that include crop rotation, planting disease-resistant varieties, using organic treatments (pears are sprayed with kaolin clay) and even trapping insects. They favor organic options first and use the aforementioned methods, and their experience, to use minimal pesticides only when and where necessary.
