History

( This page is under construction. )

Bill and Pam Pischer began leasing the five acre property in 1978, and purchased it several years later. Jessica's Stand started out as a strawberry "U-pick," where customers picked their own berries, weighed them, and left payment in a cash box.

With the help of local builder/carpenter Michael Lasche, the Pischers constructed many of the buildings on the property, including the pole barn which today houses the stand. Lasche also helped convert the rear guesthouse / office, which was originally a barn, and participated in building the plant nursery and seed shed.

Jessica's Stand has been Certified Organic for over 30 years (certifying agency: QCS).
