The Hollabaugh families have been growing fruit
near Yellow Hill for over five decades. Back in 1955, our farm market
was located across the road from its present location – in just a small
Much has changed over the years in addition to the move
across the street to a larger, more efficient market. Now we employ over 60 people at the height of our growing season,
monitor yields from each block on our nearly 500 acre farm, and track
weather electronically to aid us with pest management and fruit harvest
dates and times. That which hasn’t changed is our family ownership
and involvement, which is the key to our success today.
The original twin brothers – Donald and
Harold – have passed their knowledge and love of the land on to the 2nd
generation who are now sharing it with the 3rd! We are proud and
happy to report that 3rd generation Bruce, upon his graduation from PSU
with a degree in Horticulture, returned to the farm in 2002. Ellie,
who also graduated from PSU in 2006 with degrees in Agribusiness
Management and Spanish, has also returned to the farm. And Wayne
graduated from PSU with a degree in Agricultural Sciences, and has also
joined the family business! At the present time, supported by wives
and the best employees around, the Hollabaughs are growing only the
highest quality fruit on over 120,000 trees!
any given day, you’ll find some family member at the market, out in
the orchard supervising a crew, driving a truck, entering data for
payroll, or preparing gift boxes and fruit baskets for delivery all
over the US! For over 55 years, the Hollabaugh family has been living
up to their trademark:
