About Us

Edgewood Orchards has been owned and operated by the Zellerman family since 1930.  The original founders were Joseph C, and Elizabeth Zellerman.  Two of their five sons, Roman, and Joseph operated the orchard for many years with the help of Joseph’s wife, Florence.  The third generation, sons of Joseph and Florence, currently operate the orchard.
