About Us

Members of the Bream family bought the Cashtown Orchard in 1918 and then Green Ridge Farm in 1922. Then, in 1949, they joined Knouse Foods, a grower owned Co-operative processor.

By the 1960s, the Bream’s had converted all their land to apple and peach orchards. Throughout the 80s and 90s the orchards grew in acreage, production, and innovation. Jack (John III), Mark & Tom Bream have continued to expand the farm. There are now over 750 acres in apple and peach production.

In 1971 the first cold storage and packing house facility was built and has been expanded several times since then. In 2011, Jack, Mark & Tom began a joint venture with Bear Mountain Orchards Inc. to build a state of the art cold storage located in Biglerville, PA. 

We are committed to improving both apple and peach production. We co-operate in research studies by Penn State Fruit Research Extension Center along with others.
