About Us

 Silver Creek Packing Shed, established in 1950, packed apples for Silver Creek Orchards and Lea & Seamans Orchard. In 1974, it became Flippin-Seaman, Inc. managed by the Flippin and Seaman families. In 2012, it became Silver Creek & Seamans Orchard, Inc. Now, John and Ruth Saunders, Richard Seaman, and Anne Kidd run the operations. Richard oversees the packing shed and his orchards, while Ruth and John manage Silver Creek Orchards. Carter Parr, Brian Kidd, and Anne Kidd assist Richard at Seamans’ Orchard. The commitment to providing top-quality apples remains unchanged despite changes in family members involved.
