History:

Strites' Orchard Farm Market and Bakery is a 300-acre sustainably grown fruit and vegetable farm. We are a fourth-generation family- owned and operated business.

The Strite family has been farming in the Harrisburg area since 1843. The first fruit trees and vegetables were planted by Joseph C. Strite in 1914. His son Earl would eventually join him in the business and over time expand the farm to over 250 acres. Earl sold his produce at markets in the city of Harrisburg and door to door in nearby Hummelstown. In 1950 the original market was opened on the farm. Earl's sons Joe and Tom joined their father on the farm and expanded vegetable plantings and added greenhouse operations. All three received the honor of being named Master Farmers over the course of their careers. In 1994 a new farm market and bakery were built and the farm was expanded to 300 acres. 2011 will be the inaugural year for our CSA which will allow us to deliver produce throughout the greater Harrisburg area to participating members.
