Mt. Ridge Farms
FOUNDED ON OUR FARM
This 21 day early Honeycrisp was founded on our farm in the Summer of 2015. Tasting identical to the beloved Honeycrisp that is well known, this early variety is ready for picking early August.
Mt. Ridge Farms is a family-owned and operated wholesale fruit farm, located in the beautiful rolling hills of Adams County Pennsylvania. Five generations of apple farmers have worked hard for our business. Originally starting in the early 1900s as a cattle and small crop farm, Mt. Ridge has grown into one of the top apple growers in the local South Central PA region. Planting and growing on more than 650 acres of a variety of apples and peaches. Mt. Ridge Farms is progressive in the East cost apple industry investing in new test varieties, state of the art equipment and planting high density.
“If we had a Honeycrisp that would ripen that early, it would be a pretty big deal,”... “Imagine if we can double the number of days in which we can harvest a good quality Honeycrisp." - Mt. Ridge Farms
