Nick Botner is a throwback to generations past, unassuming and thoroughly knowledgeable as to all of the apples, nuts, berries, fruits and grapes he raises which makes it a delight to visit with him, in addition to his products being first class. Just got Himrod and Glenora grape sets from him together with complete instructions on their care.

I have obtained whips and scionwood from Nick Botner and visited his orchard. His whips were healthy, his scionwood generous and of good size. In conversation he was very knowledgeable and helpful.
In 2001, I bought 20 bare root apple trees and over the past few years have purchased apple scions from him. All the trees are healthy and the scions true to variety. Mr. Botner has a collection of over 2,000 varieties of apples and many varieties of stone fruits, pears, grapes and other fruits.
