The company’s record crop is attributed to the Adams County microclimate and the dedication to sustainable farming practices that lie at the core of Rice Fruit’s business.

“Our commitment to sustainability is evident at each stop of the growing, packing, and shipping process,” continued Briggs. “Our use of innovative techniques allows us to reduce our ecological footprint through smarter on-farm practices such as integrated pest management, efficient water usage, and soil conservation. In addition, our fruit and our employees are enjoying our new Pollinator Garden, a true example of the sweet-natured balance of our ecosystem.”

To see these apples up close and in person, booth #1457 is the one to visit.
