- Indoor and outdoor markets
Peter Klein is wild about fruit. While working in the restaurant industry, he frequented farmers markets to find the best produce available and forged lasting friendships. When his favorite fruit sellers mentioned that they were retiring, he bought their 100-year-old, 81-acre orchard. The orchard has continued to grow with new trees, new varieties of tree fruit and small fruit, and the addition of a hoop house. Seedling now grows over 100 varieties of fruit.
Seedling also produces Farmstead apple cider; picked, pressed and packed on the farm in their very own solar powered cider mill. Pete uses a device called a refractometer to measure sugars, and endeavors to pick and sell only perfectly ripe fruit and to show people the wide variety of ways in which they can enjoy it. At the market, he blends his cider with seasonal fruits to make smoothies to order.
