About Brecknock Orchard

Brecknock Orchard’s rich Lancaster County soil has been growing fruit for over 75 years. In 1994 Earl Martin purchased the farm and the Martin Family made a new start in growing fruit. Earl’s son Daryl and his wife Andrea took on the farm operations in 1996 as the second generation.

Farming Practices

We care for our entire farm with your health in mind – always trying to limit the amount of pesticides used. We use a method called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is the use of several pest control methods in a way that compliments biological and natural controls of pests. We always keep our economical, public health, and environmental goals at the forefront of our minds. With IPM, a decision to use pesticides is made when the population of that pest reaches numbers that would be detrimental to the quality of a crop, and no other alternative management practices are available. The goal of IPM is to achieve the effective management of pests in the safest manner.
