Toigo Orchards is a 450 acre farm that sits in the fertile Cumberland Valley of south central Pennsylvania, in the rural town of Shippensburg. The Orchard grows various tree fruits, such as cherries, apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums, pears, and apples, along with berries and melons, and vegetables such as corn and tomatoes.
