About Tree-Licious Orchards: The Kesler Family started Tree-Licious Orchards 35 years ago to provide fresh fruit and vegetables for the benefit of the community and their family. The Kesler’s follow a low pesticide “integrated pest management” model. Today, Tree-Licious Orchards grows 9 types of fruit, 73 varieties of apples and many varieties of vegetables over the growing season – following this same practice – minimal pesticide so the fruits and vegetables may be picked and enjoyed immediately –without scrubbing and peeling.
What does “low spray” mean? This means the fruit and vegetables can be enjoyed directly from the orchards and fields – no wax, residue or commercial packaging. It also means the fruit and vegetables may display skin deep, exterior blemishes or “freckles”. While the fruit and vegetable may appear “ugly” on the outside – they are delicious on the inside. The fruit and vegetables are not shipped across the country to a commercial market – reach for a tomato, apple or peach on the way home from the farmers market and enjoy yummy goodness straight from the farm!
Tree-Licious Orchards sponsors several on-farm opportunities throughout the season including Pick Your Own from early July through October, monthly Farm to Table Dinners and family events at the farm. Please visit us at the farm, at the market or at a farm event. Please visit us on the web at www.treeliciousorchards.com for events and pictures.
