  • Kieffer pears ripen off the tree

    Requests for Kieffer pears have been rolling in lately. We do not have volume, only a few here and there that we have planted in the last five years, or so.  
    Most of the really good Kieffer pears are found on old farm sites that have been long vacant. The Kieffer pear is a remnant of a once thriving agricultural model that fed the whole family.   
    Among the farm smorgasbord was the small home orchard; and among the orchard the Kieffer pear still stands if nothing else does.
