About Our Family Business
The Hollabaugh families have been growing fruit near Yellow Hill for over five decades. Back in 1955, our farm market was located in a small shed across the road from its present location.
- Three Generations of the Hollabaugh Family own and operate the farm.
Much has changed over the years in addition to the family’s most recent endeavor – building a brand new farm market! Now we call over 60 employees our extended family. Without each and every one of them, we’d never be able to run our family business. What hasn’t changed is our family ownership and involvement, which is the key to our success today.
The original twin brothers – Donald and Harold – have passed their knowledge and love of the land on to the 2nd generation who are now sharing it with the 3rd and 4th! Third generation Bruce, upon his graduation from PSU with a degree in Horticulture, returned to the farm in 2002. Ellie, who also graduated from PSU in 2006 with degrees in Agribusiness Management and Spanish, has also returned to the farm. And Wayne graduated from PSU with a degree in Agricultural Sciences, and has also joined the family business! The Hollabaugh family takes pride in growing only the highest quality fruits and vegetables on nearly 500 acres!
On any given day, you’ll find some family member at the market, out in the orchard supervising a crew, driving a truck, entering data for payroll, or preparing gift boxes and fruit baskets for delivery all over the US! For nearly 60 years, the Hollabaugh family has been living up to their trademark:
Generations Growing For You!
Now we invite you to join our family – stop by our market, tour our farm, take a class, come pick your own produce, or attend one of our festivals. You see, just as we value our own family, we truly appreciate you – our loyal customers. We do indeed love what we are doing, and we want to share that love and respect of the land with you.
