Our initial planting list for 2014

shiaappleHealing Tree Farm at DeYoung Spring 2014 planting

The following list represents the initial planting at the DeYoung orchard. We hope to  double the number of rare and unique varieties available at the farm in the next 10 years.

Currently, we’re also working with the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore to help propagate varieties within the park boundaries as part of an ongoing effort to save this significant piece of our regional living history. Some of those varieties are so rare, we have not been able to locate them anywhere outside of the park. We’ll begin nurserying some of these trees next spring as well.

We appreciate your support as we work to educate others on ecologically integrative farming methods, while working to protect and propagate these historic and exquisite apples. For now, browse the list and enjoy! We welcome your stories, questions, and ideas. Contact us through comment or email healingtreefarm@gmail.com Thank you kindly!
