Peace Tree Farm in Kintnersville, Pa., has announced that John Story has been hired as the company’s general manager and education director. This January, Alex Traven will join Peace Tree’s production team as a grower to help develop an organic produce and cut flower and herb program.

With more than 40 years experience in the horticulture industry, Story is best known for the annuals and perennials he grows for clients displaying at the Philadelphia International Flower Show.

Story is joining the Peace Tree team to share his production wisdom and expertise with Peace Tree’s younger generation of growers, Joseph LaMent and Alex Traven. Throughout his career, Story has managed the greenhouses at Meadowbrook Farm in Abington Township, Pa., Robertson’s Flowers in Philadelphia and developed the perennial plug business at Gro-n-Sell in Chalfont, Pa.

Traven graduated from Cornell University last May with a degree in Plant Sciences. At Cornell, Alex was the manager of the student-run organic farm, where he and a team of students grew and supplied produce to Cornell’s dining establishments and the local restaurants and community.

Since graduating, Alex has been working on a field-grown cut flower farm in Newfield, N.Y. He is the son of Peace Tree Farm’s owners Lloyd and Candy Traven.
