Farm History:

Varieties Grown:

Honeycrisp, Gala, Jonagold, Red Delicious, McIntosh, Fuji, Jonathan, Golden Delicious, Ginger Gold, Empire, Rome and Ida Red.

Items of Interest:

Patrick has steadily planted new trees of popular varieties such as Gala, Honeycrisp and Fuji. He has also invested in fans for most of his farms to move warmer air from above and prevent frost damage to blossoms in the spring.
