Welcome to Decker Farm & Orchard.
We are a family run farm and orchard with a focus on making fresh, healthy food options available to our local community.
We believe that healthy soil is the foundation of our farm, and that we have a responsibility to ensure that it remains productive and fertile; as a result we utilize only sustainable, organic growing practices to provide a wide variety of fresh produce for you to enjoy
