Highland Orchards Survive & Thrive in Suburbia

Highland OrchardsOff to the farm we go today--Highland Orchards, the little farm in the middle of Brandywine Hundred, I mean. Right across the street from Brandywine High School on Foulk Rd., “The Main Street of Brandywine Hundred.”

 Lots of organic veggies (plus some non-organics from other sources) and home baked goodies. Highland 2 Today I tried the sourdough bread and got some peaches and tomatoes grown right on the property.

It is a CSA property, which means you can subscribe to get periodic baskets of whatever is good and growing that week. The goatschicken coops provide eggs, and I’m not sure what the goats do other than ham it up for pictures. The Lintons, who have owned the property ever since I can remember and whose family goes back to early days (1832)  in the area, are still at work, just like their ancestors!

Hi Carolyn Roland-Historic Homes For Sale In Delaware and S. Chester County PA !

Thanks for a great post about Highland Orchards!

We frequent the Uptown Farmers Market in Phoenix when it's open for organic fruits and vegetables.

Unfortunately due to the extreme heat, it's closed for a few months during the summer.

Tony and Suzanne-Our markets are only open in summer and early fall. Although it gets hot here, can't imagine them closing because of heat!
