    Recently as many of you may know one of the largest fruit tree nurseries in the US closed it's doors. Stark bros in Louisana MO is one of the largest mail order and walk in supliers of fruit trees around. The current asking price to my understanding is 20 mil..........Where else do I go for quality fruit trees in the midwest. This closing has caused me problems in locating good fruit and vine stock for resale. Any leads would be appreciated.

    I was never happy with the product from Stark Bros so good riddance.

    I have had good luck with Miller Nurseries in Canandaigua NY (sp?). Very good variety also.
