History

Painting of John Dainel Blyler Blyler Fruit Farm had its beginning in Valley View, PA. John and Agnes Blyler were the parents of Elmer Blyler. Elmer and Alberta began the Farm Market at its present location, one mile East of Gratz on Route 25, in 1940. In 1961 Elmer purchased his parents' farm at Valley View, which was then planted with apples and pears. The two farms are nine miles apart. The Valley View farm is located in Schuylkill County and the Gratz farm is located in Dauphin County. The acreage has remained at about 125 acres of cropland. Seventy-five of these have consistently been planted in tree fruits. The remaining acreage is in rotation of strawberries and vegetables. In 1998 Elvin and John Blyler, sons of Elmer and Alberta Blyler, formed a partnership to continue the farm operation.

The Blyler Fruit Farm has apples available almost year round. We currently grow and carry 13 varieties and can store 25,000 bushels of apples. We also carry a variety of other fruits and vegetables, including peaches, nectarines, apricots, strawberries, plums, pears, cherries, sugar peas, pumpkins, turnips, and more.
