In 1954, Ralph Styer Sr. and Edna (Lazarus) Styer set out on an adventure of a lifetime. They moved their family of six children from a farm in Camphill, Pennsylvania to the farm here on Armstrong road. At that time, the farm house was a bit rough around the edges yet the setting was priceless. It contained the perfect river bottom ground that is optimal for most growing conditions and had the added bonus of a water source, the Susquehanna River. Ralph and Edna, along with the help of their young children, grew mainly potatoes, strawberries, corn, and small produce. Also, on the second story of the barn, they raised baby chickens to sell for meat and eggs.
In the late seventies to early eighties, Ralph and Edna decided they needed to down size their operation, so they planned on planting a small field of blueberries. To their surprise, the people in the community and surrounding areas quite enjoyed the berries. The interest in pick your own blueberries was so strong that they expanded the small plot to five acres with its very own underground watering system.
Currently, the farm is owned and operated by the second, third, and even fourth generations. Robyn, the youngest grand-daughter of Ralph and Edna, along with her husband and three children live on the farm. Her father and uncle, Sam and Carl Styer, help with the daily operations as well. It truly is a family run business.
