Sally the Skunk

Did you know you can have a skunk for a pet? 

Elaine didn’t know that either! Join Elaine and her family as they care for a baby skunk one summer right here at Highland Orchards. 

Also available in the farm store. 

Farming Books

Small farm farmers don’t have the benefit of scale that large farms do. That means that you have to work smarter. 

In these books you’ll find what crops are easy and hard to grow, how to store your crop, and how to sell it. Afterall, growing all these wonderful things doesn’t make much sense if you can’t make a living. 


We have a couple fun notebooks made. One is covered with fruits and vegetables inside and out. The other has a farm girl and her pet skunk with simple lined pages (and some small skunks) inside. 

About Ruth

I am the 6th generation of my family to farm here at Highland Orchards in Delaware. I grew up here, learning from my grandparents and parents how to plant, weed, harvest, and store fruits, vegetables, and flowers. My graduate degree is in history, so I love to research anything and everything. I have taught at all levels, including university and continuing education. I have done everything on the farm from planting to harvest to selling to social media. I love that I can share knowledge with people through books, blogs, and courses.
