LRFM Vendor Spotlight
Twin Springs Fruit Farm of Adams County, Pennsylvania

Twin Springs Fruit Farm is located near the village of Orrtanna in the heart of the Adams County Fruit Belt.  The farm is 100+ acres in size, and rents an additional 30 acres from a neighboring farm for vegetable and melon production.  Twin Springs currently operates as a family farm, with Aubrey King and his two sons, Michael and Jesse, as owners and growers.  Twin Springs prides itself on its sustainability and green practices, and operates with an extremely low carbon footprint.  Visit Twin Springs at the LRFM for fresh-from-the-farm fruits and vegetables in all colors of the rainbow and (insider's tip!) ask about the honey collected from bees who work on the farm!
