About Us

England's Orchard and Nursery was derived from my Husbans grandfathers tree farming hobby on his farm in South Eastern Kentucky. Between 1960 and 1985 many kinds of fruit and nut trees were planted. By 1985 it was obvious that the area was well suited for the growth of nuts with the nuttrees being the best adapted and most promising crop of all the trees that were planted. Since 1985 hundreds of seedlings have been planted from the best parent trees and as a result this area has one of the few chestnut orchards in the state of Kentucky.

For several years we have collected plant material, seedlings from around the world and seeds from our best orchard trees. These seedlings represent some of the best genetic material available today. The parent trees are selected on the basis of consistent yield, size of nuts, quality of nuts, blight resistance, cold hardiness and tree vigor.

. Relying heavily on the research, gathered information and data from the agricultural communities through University of Kentucky, England¿s Orchard and Nursery has enhanced many of the most common propagation techniques. Our Propagating methods include: Rooting hardwood cuttings by vegetative propagation and grafting selected plant materials of known cultivated varieties. Our Business goals have been and is to demonstrate the feasibility of nut and fruit production to include timber type tree materials for a alternative cash crop.
