Farming Practices

Preserving and Protecting Our Legacy

As farmers we spend more time in the midst of nature than most people. We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to breathe fresh air and work outdoors as often as we do. This farm has been in our family for three generations, and we all work many many hours to care for the land. Each day we are working to care for our trees, harvest the crops, mow the grass, pick up litter, and work with mother nature in all her glory. We are thankful for the blessings we’ve been given.

Education is a big part of what we do here. We are constantly re-educating ourselves, our employees, and our customers on how we can work with mother nature and make the most of the harvest. Whether it’s attending conferences, meeting with expert scientists, or reading articles in the latest professional journals, we are striving to create a sustainable farm for our future. The next generation of our family depends on us to make Orr’s Orchards and Berkeley County a place that will be beautiful for years to come.
