PORT MURRAY, NJ -- Tree-licious Orchards has a great reputation for their varieties of apples, fruits and vegetables, but it’s also known as a foster home for rescue husky dogs. “Our huskies just love life at the orchard,” said Tree-licious partner, Ginger Kesler.

Housing huskies at the farm started as a way to help reduce the orchard of critters and provide a better life for the dogs. “Our huskies are all rescues,” said Kesler. “They’ve all been given to us from families who could not have them in city apartments.”

Visitors to the orchard enjoy playing with the huskies as they pick their produce. “They’re very family-friendly, so when people come to visit the farm, they get to see our huskies,” Kesler said.

The fostering program has been successful, and Tree-licious is looking to bring more huskies to the farm. “We are looking for new huskies, rescue huskies, any age,” said Kesler. “We are happy to rescue them and foster them.”

“They really have a great life living here at the orchard with all the families, and just having their space to roam,” Kesler added.
