Brecknock Orchard

Brecknock Orchard Brecknock Orchard is committed to serving you! Brecknock Orchard’s rich Lancaster County soil has been growing fruit for over 75 years. In 1994 Earl Martin purchased the farm and the Martin Family made a new start in growing fruit.

Earl’s son Daryl and his wife Andrea took on the farm operations in 1996 as the second generation. Brecknock Orchard specializes in tree ripened fruits, berries and a full selection of vegetables. We offer Pick Your Own Fruits in season so you and your family can enjoy freshness, and make memories together in the orchard. It is our goal to offer you the highest quality selection of health and goodness from our orchard to your table.

Is there a harvest date yet for Ginger Gold apples?
C a n t a l o u p e s! Available for delivery this week from Brecknock Orchard in Mohnton, PA! 🍈🍈
Did you know that next weeks Fruit Box’s are predicted to include: local Ginger Gold Apples from Brecknock Orchard & Donut Nectarines from Weaver's Orchard!?
The hardest part of getting grocery deliveries during the pandemic was having someone pick my produce - I like to do that myself (the voice of privilege). I say this because everytime you deliver an order to me, it is an impeccable and impressive work of art, with the most BEAUTIFUL produce I could EVER hope to find! I should have taken a pic, but forgot. The bananas were green just as I asked (it is SOOO hard to get green bananas - people are sure you really don't WANT green bananas no matter how many times you emphasize that you do) LOL. The tomatoes - well I really have no words - they were big as a sandwich plate and drop-dead gorgeous, as was everything else in the box! Thank you so much for sending such beautiful things my way. I feel so blessed!
The end of strawberry season is here, but I was lucky enough to get one last quart of Brecknock's local berries! This pie was the result! Thank you!
Strawberries are officially on the menu! We have quarts and flats available. Locally grown at Brecknock Orchard! 🍓🍓
