For over 200 years, Stark Bro’s has helped homesteaders like you incorporate fruits and vegetables into self-sufficient lifestyles. We’ve built upon the legacy of our founder, James Hart Stark, who moved to Missouri with a handful of apple tree scion wood to start the orchard on his homestead in 1816. He grew a reputation of cultivating only the most productive, superior tasting varieties. This unwavering commitment to excellence has been a driving principal for our nursery for the past two centuries. Bringing only the best to market resulted in Stark Bro’s world-renowned varieties like the Golden Delicious and Red Delicious apples.  

As we look towards the future, Stark Bro’s continues to innovate and produce with an industry-leading reputation as the oldest continuously operating nursery in the world. Stark Bro’s is committed to your success on the homestead as you grow your own legacy. We’re proud to offer a one-year plant and tree warranty, and the support of our dedicated, local customer service team to provide live support and growing expertise to every customer.
