I highly recommend this small nursery. They are not as easy to communicate with due to the lack of email, website, etc, but if you write you will get a nice catalog of the varieties which are a mix of older classics and moderns. The quality of the trees is about the best for the price I have seen -- they are as good as Adams County Nursery for example but are much cheaper for us smaller customers. They have a few things besides fruit trees, in particular I got some impressive rhubarb divisions from them which were about five times bigger than ones I got elsewhere and which have prospered.

|I met Amos ,the owner of White Oak at the summer meeting of the Back Yard Fruit Growes Assoc. Amos gave a great presentation on grafting fruit Trees . I friend of mine has a backyard orchard with 30 Heirloom apples. He highly recommends buying trees from White Oak. I am ordering several this winter.

|Last summer, I had Lincoln pears from a local farmer's market. A little bumpy, don't keep long, taste REALLY GOOD! So I decided to plant one. Research turned up White Oak as the only nursery who carried them (based on Seed Savers Fruit & Nut Inventory Book, plus follow-up calls). It seemed peculiar there was no website, no phone, no e-mail and they didn't take credit cards - suspiciously fly-by-night.
It turns out they are Amish people, and you have to write a letter to do business with them. I enjoyed the correspondence which was friendly and personal. I ordered what I wanted plus a couple other apple varieties they suggested. It was shipped a week late, but otherwise everything was fine. The trees (apples & pear) have put on satisfactory growth for their first season, and the accessories were also of good quality. Wouldn't hesitate to do business with them again.

|This is an Amish company who does not have a phone or website. You'll have to write them to find out what they have. Apparantly they offer heirloom and modern apple trees.
