Welcome to River Road Farms!

Every espaliered tree we train is inspired by the work of Father Legendre of Hanonsville, France, who is credited with pioneering this horticultural art form in 1684. Our passion runs deep and remains true to the spirit and techniques that were developed by him.

What if you could pull fresh, delicious fruit from an ornamental tree in your small garden without taking a big footprint in your landscape design? With espaliered fruit trees, you can! 

Some of our favorite trees are the fruit trees, which we have trained into a variety of shapes that produce home-grown fruit each season. Since espaliered trees grow against a wall, they make efficient use of space while adding beauty and delicious fresh fruit at your fingertips.

It's like having an orchard in your garden! Read more here.
