It all started when Joe and Jean Briggs began farming in the fertile Bonita Springs Valley in 1968. The 4,500-foot elevation, sunny days, cool nights, and plentiful supply of pure water create the perfect environment for growing deliciously sweet fruit! Melissa and her husband, Lance Eggers, joined the family operation in 1993. Today Lance & Melissa operate the orchard along with their dedicated employees.
The pride that we have in our orchard is refelcted in every detail from the blossom on the tree to the apple in your hand.
That’s why our fruit tastes so great! It’s the freshest, sweetest, tree-ripened fruit available anywere!
