Ames’ Orchard & Nursery

Washington County, Arkansas

Guy Ames was part of the back-to the-land counterculture of the 1970s and began creating his farming legacy in 1980. With no family history of farming, Guy is a self-taught farmer that fell in love with the Ozarks. Ames’ Orchard & Nursery grows certified naturally grown pears, apples, grapes, and berries. They are passionate about empowering others to grow their own pesticide free, high-quality fruit.

I was a hippie back-to-the-lander. I fell in love with my land and the idea of living in harmony with nature. It all sounds like a corny cliche, but that's the truth of the matter.
