Roba Family Farms Small Business Spotlight

Roba Family Farms was the small business spotlighted at the December 5 Lackawanna County Commissioners Meeting. John Roba started his business in 1984 with the purchase of a 52-acre farm in North Abington Township. He began to harvest trees there in 1990 and the operation took off and diversified from that point. Along with his wife and children, Mr. Roba began to expand, selling pumpkins. The family also purchased two other farms for growing Christmas, flowering and shade trees and apples. The orchard featured a variety of family fun games and rides.
