Boaz Gardenhour started growing fruit in the Smithsburg area in the late 1890's.
Boaz had four sons in which the two oldest continued to run their father's operation together until 1940.
That same year the oldest, G. William Gardenhour bought the land where our current location is today, while his brother Raymond remained on the original home farm.
Today, the fourth generation of Gardenhours still operate the farm giving residents of the Smithsburg area and those that travel from out of state the finest fresh fruit for all to enjoy.
Pictured is one of the fifth generation Boaz Gardenhour descendants.
Atlas is our other family member, a playful black Lab. He enjoys the attention that he receives from each customer that visits the packing house.
Come and welcome Atlas to Gardenhour Orchards.
G. William “Willie” Gardenhour
