Peace Tree Farm is a family-owned business located in Kintnersville, in the countryside of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Owned by Lloyd, Candy, and Alex Traven, Peace Tree Farm specializes in growing specialty lavenders, organic herbs, vegetable plants, unusual begonias, as well as specialty annuals and blooming potted crops. They provide other growers with pre-finished and young plants and offer fine-quality finished plants to independent garden centers, botanical gardens, museums, estate gardeners, and horticultural groups.
To grow better plants with sustainable practices, the company strives to push beyond the bounds of conventional horticulture. Peace Tree Farm's growing practices combine an innovative biological pest control system with state-of-the-art greenhouse technology. Their herb and vegetable plants are USDA Certified Organic, giving their clients the peace of mind that comes with independent third-party verification of their growing practices. While Peace Tree Farm does not certify its ornamental crops, they are all grown to their exacting environmental standards.
Peace Tree Farm grows quality plants in one acre of greenhouses on a historic 25-acre farm. The property, purchased by Lloyd and Candy Traven in 1983, was named ‘Peace Tree Farm’ inspired by the Native American word 'tohickon', which means peace tree. Nowadays, Peace Tree Farm has been featured in Greenhouse Grower Magazine, marking a huge milestone for the company.
Lloyd and Candy purchased the Peace Tree Farm property in Bucks County, Pennsylvania in 1983. They have grown Peace Tree Farm from ‘the little greenhouses up on the hill’ to an established and respected operation among international horticulture. Lloyd is a technology guru and advocates for small growers, being among the first to successfully invest in sophisticated environmental control systems for their operation. He conducts seminars and makes presentations at growing industry conferences and conventions.
Lloyd and Candy’s son Alex has come on board as the future of the business. His focus is on advanced biocontrol methods, sustainability, and a millennial perspective as the driving force behind the operation.
