Berks County Horticulture

Obviously, a big part of farming is food. But throughout the Greater Reading Area, that isn’t the only reason we’re so dedicated to our craft. Nature is beautiful, and for many of us in Southeastern Pennsylvania, traditions and memories are important. That’s where Berks County horticulture comes in.

Christmas Tree Farms

The holiday season is right around the corner, and gathering the family to pick out your very own Christmas tree has been a proud Berks County tradition for generations.

No matter what type of tree you’re looking to display this year, the Greater Reading Area has enough options to satisfy. Whether you prefer an elegant evergreen from Bear Farms in Kempton, a wider selection and the option to cut your own like you’d find at Freymoyer Christmas Tree Farm is Hamburg, or wholesale options like those on offer at Geissler Tree Farms in Leesport, Berks County has it all.

Creating Cherished Memories

The Berks County area has long been the standard for tradition and family values. A big part of that identity is the multiple local orchards, garden centers, and nurseries that have existed in this area for generations.

Berks County knows family, because we are family. In fact, places like Firstfruits Orchard in Douglassville and Wild Fox Farm in Barto have been family-owned and operated without fail for decades.

Decorate Locally for the Season

All throughout Berks County, families enjoy showing holiday spirit. With local horticulture, there’s more than just trees. Every season you can find handmade authentic wreaths and garland, the most beautiful bright poinsettias, and traditional fall decor like corn stalks, gourds, and pumpkins.

Take a look at Geigertown Greenhouse in Birdsboro for example. This fourth generation grower offers a broad selection of quality plants for your home and garden. They offer the newest selections for you to try, along with our tried and true favorites for your gardening enjoyment. Some of their products include annual flowers, perennial flowers, vegetable plants and seasonal crops including: mums, pumpkins, decorative fall cabbage, poinsettias, Christmas Trees, and much more!
