In 1983, the third generation entered the family orchard business when Roger and Ann's son Andy planted his first tree for a FFA school project. Their daughter Rhonda began helping in the apple house that same year.

Whether its working in the kitchen making pies and other goodies or working in the fields with fruits and vegetables, there is always something to do. At the present time, R & A Orchard has approximately 60 acres of apples trees and approximately 10 acres of peaches and nectarines. Peach picking begins around June 1 with apple picking beginning August 1. Also vegetables through frost. Apple season normally runs through December 1.
