As a (new) member of the PA Backyard Fruitgrowers (BYFG) I have had the unique pleasure of both visiting a fruit tasting (100+ types!) and mail-ordering numerous fruit trees through White Oak Nursery. The BYFGs have a relationship with the nursery and so I take the hour long trek a couple of times a year for events. As some have already mentioned, Amos and his kinfolk are Amish, so assume all that goes along with that lifestyle and business model when considering a purchase here. That being said, I feel sort of lucky that the whole country doesn't have direct access via the internet to some of these amazing heirloom trees and plants. You'll not see some of these old country fruits anywhere else. I'll take the best of both worlds in this case.

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.
