About the Company

Dondero Orchards

A family-owned local farm celebrating 108 years!

They primarily raised cows, raspberries, apples and grapes on the farm. Their son, Edward, (Rugged) the youngest of 9 children, married Doris Starr in 1947 and the two worked the farm with their son, Eddie, and his wife Judy, raising mainly apples. They sold the majority of their produce wholesale, and they started “pick your own” as they really enjoyed working more with the public.

The farm has been passed down four generations and is now being operated by Edward and Doris’ grandson, Joe, his wife Sandy, their sons, Joey Jr. & Nicholas, Anthony and daughter Angelina. Dondero now attends many Farmers markets during the growing season and has two farm markets, a bakery and a 7,200 s.f. greenhouse.
