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.

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 productionon 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.
