Louis and William Blake established the original orchard plantation known as Blake Brother's Orchard in the spring of 1949. All trees planted were of the standard variety with 32 trees per acre. Since then their nephew David John Griffiths took over the farm in 1981. The orchard was renamed Blake's Apple Orchard and has now been replaced with high density trees which produce ten popular apple varieties. These apples are sold at the farm store and also to local venders in surrounding communities.
