That’s Farmer Paul, Generation 4 of the McPhersons, with eldest daughter Gretchen, circa 1972.
Meet your farmers – The McPherson Family
A Little History About The Farm
Thanks for joining our farm family. Maple Lawn Farms has been growing food for the local community for over 160 years. The farm encompasses over 1,400 acres of Cherries, Blueberries, Apricots, Peaches, Plums, Apples, Raspberries, Blackberries and Pumpkins – ALL of which you can pick in season. We also farm field corn, soybeans and wheat in rotation as animal feed for neighboring farms.
A Little About the McPhersons
Currently 3 generations of McPhersons occupy and farm the land; Paul & Betsy, Hugh & Janine and their children Annie & Ian. It is a family affair in harvest season with “all hands on deck” to welcome guests to the orchards and fields. Hugh’s sisters, Gretchen & Sarah, ventured off the farm to California and New York City, but love returning for family holidays.
A Little About the Future
This farm is open to connecting our guests to agriculture. You can pick-your-own fruit from the farm. You may purchase a share of our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) membership. We want everything we grow on this farm to leave in the hands of the person who’s going to eat it.
That’s who we are and we’re grateful you’re interested in local food, local farms and Maple Lawn Farms in particular.
