About Marge Wallace
John and Doris Landis started here after buying the family farm from John's father in the 70's. With the help of their son, John Jr. and several employees they have continued to maintain and grow their farm. In 1983 they began their mulch landscaping business that is now known as Landyshade Mulch. Their mulch business grew quickly and is known all over Lancaster County now.
Marge Wallace purchased this Farmhouse in 1975

Wonderful Farmhouse- Lovely and Comfortable
We enjoyed our stay over the Easter weekend with our adult children, their spouses, and a siblings family with their children. There was plenty of room for all and everything we needed was provided down to a variety of sweeteners for morning coffee. Marge was friendly and accommodating and a pleasure to work with.
