Tree Farm, a commercial forestry operation, in 1955. In 1975
the owner, Charles Salter, chose to devote full time to the
operation and to establish a nursery specializing in the propagation
and culture of the native plants of the region. In
1996 the Salter Tree Farm was closed and Charles Salter died
in 2002. Later that year, his daughter and granddaughter reopened
the nursery as the Salter Tree and Herb Farm. The farm was the
scene of flourishing native trees and shrubs, many rare and
endangered but with existing healthy stock plants able to continue
the course of propagation.

James Stark had started a tradition of horticultural excellence.
Stark Bro's Nurseries & Orchards Co. gained world leadership
as a developer and promoter of outstanding fruit varieties.
The most famous of these are the Stark Red Delicious Apple from
1893 and the Stark Golden Delicious Apple from 1914. This work
of quality and excellence led to an association with famed plant
wizard Luther Burbank. After his passing in 1926, Stark Bro's
was selected to carry on his work with more than 750 varieties.

these health-conscious times, with demand for organically
grown foods fast increasing, it's still hard to find a good-tasting,
locally grown, organic apple. Faced with an impressive rogue's
gallery of potential insect pests--curculio, codling moth,
and others--most orchard "experts" will tell you
flat out that growing apples organically is impossible.
fruit growers have sprayed their trees with toxic chemicals
in an attempt to control a range of insect and fungal pests.
Yet it is possible to grow apples responsibly, by applying
the intuitive knowledge of our great-grandparents with the
fruits of modern scientific research and innovation.
Michael Phillips and growers like him didn't listen. For several
years now, Phillips has been "doing the impossible"
at Lost Nation Orchard in Northern New Hampshire--growing
apples successfully using no artificial pesticides or fertilizers.
His secret lies in hard work, creative marketing, and a willingness
to observe and learn from nature. The definitive guide to
growing apples wisely, naturally, and with gentle impact on
The Apple Grower first appeared in 1998, orchardist Michael
Phillips has continued his research with apples, which have
been called “organic’s final frontier.”
In this new edition of his widely acclaimed work, Phillips
delves even deeper into the mysteries of growing good fruit
with minimal inputs. Some of the cuttingedge topics he explores
use of kaolin clay as an effective strategy against curculio
and borers, as well as its limitations
* Creating a diverse, healthy orchard ecosystem through
understory management of plants, nutrients, and beneficial
* How to make a small apple business viable by focusing
on heritage and regional varieties, value-added products,
and the “community orchard” model
personal voice and clear-eyed advice have already made The
Apple Grower a classic among small-scale growers and home
orchardists. In fact, anyone serious about succeeding with
apples needs to have this updated edition on their bookshelf.

We are a second generation family business. Our chestnut business
was derived from my father's tree farming hobby on our 180 acre
farm in east central Ohio. Between 1958 and 1970, many kinds
of forest trees, fruit trees, and nut trees (including Chinese
chestnuts), were planted. By 1970, it was obvious that the Chinese
chestnuts were the best adapted and most promising crop producers
of all the trees that were planted. So, in 1972 we planted over
600 seedlings from our best chestnut mother trees. As a result
of this and subsequent larger plantings, we have one of the
few chestnut orchards in the USA which can be considered to
be of commercial size. Based on the success of these plantings,
chestnuts have become my full-time occupation since 1984.
