Founded by Richard S. Frecon in 1944 after leaving the USDA Frecons was started as a wholesale fruit operation where both fruit, family and a legacy would be raised. Richard and his wife Martha raised six children on the family farm with each of them fostering Richards passion for orchards and entrepreneurship in their own right.
Richards son Henry Frecon, his wife Mary and his sister Teri brought forward the second generation of the orchard managing and growing the Orchard and Retail Store from the 70’s through the early 2000’s. Their indelible mark has been left on both the orchard and retail store both greatly expanded under their stewardship in fruit variety and production as well as services and gourmet foods from the retail store.
Third Generation and Today
Frecon Farms has grown into a diverse operation in every sense of the word and we think Richard would be proud. For over 70 years Frecons have honed the crafts of fruit production, on and off farm marketing and most recently craft hard cider. Today the business is run by the 3rd generation and a team of talented employees who look to continue Frecons diversification while remaining rooted to our heritage of growing the finest fruits.
We look with great anticipation and expectation toward the future of agriculture in america. The local movement spearheaded by a grassroots movement of impassioned farmers and supporters have reinvigorated US Farming and Frecons is excited to be a part of it all. We look forward to the expansion of our UPick program and on farm events. Consumer education is critical to the survivability of the American farm and we see no better way to build a new generation of impassioned farmers and supporters of farming then to invite you to our farm. Our Wholesale program is replanting the orchard with new varieties and great enthusiasm that is shared by the clients we service who see a continued demand from their clients for local agricultural products. And Hard Cider has there ever been a more exciting rebirth of an old and forgotten industry? Hard cider has given us the opportunity to test our horticultural chops in growing heirloom varieties then seeing what unique flavors we can ferment them into. The local scene in Philadelphia has given us so much support it is with great confidence we look toward national distribution. Stay tuned…..
