150 Years in the Making…Plus One!
It is not often that a family owned and run businesses can hit such high milestones like ourselves! Here at Bishop’s we are not only proud of what we have accomplished since 1871, but even more proud and privileged to have had the support of our community for so many years. As a thank you to all our patrons, Bishop’s Orchards wants to invite members of our community to help celebrate 150 years in business… PLUS ONE! This celebration has been a long time coming, with dates getting pushed back due to the pandemic. We are now FINALLY making up for lost time, PLUS MORE!
