Linvilla Orchards is a 300-acre family farm dedicated to agriculture, entertainment and education. A trip to Linvilla creates family memories that last a lifetime and generations of Delaware Valley families have returned year after year to experience all of the things that make Linvilla Orchards special.
In 1914, Arthur Linvill and his mother Lydia purchased a dairy farm with an eighty-foot tall octagonal barn. The Linvills shipped fresh milk and cream to Philadelphia, but Arthur wanted to grow peaches. Orchards were planted and they sold the fruit from a horse-drawn wagon. With the increased use of automobiles people began to come to the farm where the Linvill family sold their produce from the front porch of the farm house. As the produce became more abundant, the farm became more popular and the Farm Market opened in the Octagonal Barn. Over the years a bakery and gift shop were added which complemented the operation. Neighbors from all over the Delaware Valley have been coming back ever since.
In 2002, the picturesque barn was destroyed in a fire, but the Linvill family hopes to rebuild the landmark on its original site some day. Arthur's son Paul, his wife Peg, their children and grandchildren continue to operate Linvilla Orchards, faithful to the tradition that has made it such a great place to visit for a century. They hope you'll be part of the next great era in Linvilla history.
