Peck & Bushel Fruit Company loves fruit. Their orchard contains over 10,000 dwarf apple trees grown on a trellis system much like a vineyard. These smaller trees make the fruit easier to grow and harvest. At the orchard they plant flowers and shrubs that attract pollinators to enhance the natural fruit tree. This helps to promote a healthy, balanced ecosystem, which is the best pest control. They only grow fruit that is certified organic. They choose natural methods of fruit production to enure a healthy eating experience.
