Our Orchard
Morning Glory Orchard was purchased by Curt & Christina Wideman in 2002 from another family who had owned and operated the farm for a decade. The Orchard was something of a dream for Curt; he was born in LA (Lower Alabama as he liked to say) and was a country boy through and through. Although he spent his entire career in a suit and tie, retirement begged for something different. After all three of their children moved to Murfreesboro, these two parents decided to follow. Curt hung up that three piece suit and convinced Christina to purchase the beautiful property on which the orchard resides and although they knew nothing about growing apples, they eagerly jumped in. Retirement was never more busy or more rewarding! Curt found peace and contentment at the orchard, but sadly, earlier this year, we lost Curt to cancer. As you can see in the picture, Curt was larger than life! He was a kind, generous, loving and douting husband, father and grandfather. While we can never fill his shoes, his family has decided to honor his legacy by keeping the orchard open. Curt knew most of the in's and out's of the business so please bear with us as we stumble through the first year without him. We will make mistakes, we may not do things the same way he did, but we are learning as we go. We just want to continue to bring our friends and neighbors the freshest and best fruits and vegetables in Middle Tennessee.
