OPENING DAY: Friday, November 25th 2022
McConnell's Nursery was founded in 1975 when Richard McConnell bought the land from his father, who operated a dairy farm. Richard and his wife, Christine, began to use the land to grow evergreen trees such as; Scotch Pine, Norway Spruce, and Blue Spruce. In the following years, they continued to plant and experiment with several kinds of evergreens and deciduous trees as well as shrubs and groundcover. Their children; Scott, Gretchen, Jen, always knew they had work to do around the farm. Richard, Scott and Jen graduated from the Department of Horticulture at Penn State University and are still on the farm.
Today our nursery supplies quality B&B material for garden centers, landscape contractors and wholesale yards in Lawrence County and surrounding areas. We open our farm to public the day after Thanksgiving for our Choose-n-Cut Christmas tree season.
The farm has seen many changes through the years and we are excited to see how it will continue to grow.
"A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work." -Ecclesiastes 2:24
