Friends of mine in Wilkes-Barre, PA are in the same situation. They have a good sized vine with nice large cones. They also have some alecost available. This is also a you pick deal.
Some info on alecost:

And if anyone lives near Butler, PA, I'm going to have more pears than I'll know what to do with. (bosc and bartlett)
