|About||We're a small family farm that has been selling its Lamb burger and Brats. Recently we started selling Coffees & equipment, Seasonings, and also lovely gifts.Helping to promote American family businesses is important, as well as quality products.|
The idea of actually having our dream of an orchard was to be a reality when we found this property. The orchard was in much need of a lot of TLC, and a family of dreamers who could see past the many issues that it had acquired over the many years of neglect. There were some things in this orchard that could not be salvaged and we carefully took to the task of cleaning it up. One such area was the very front of the property. A huge long area of bushes of plums, with many dead branches. Tangled in with it were old wires of long forgotten fences, simply left. Once we started to clean it, we soon discovered that it had once been two rows of lovely plum trees. Along the grassy area were leftovers of rhubarb plants that was once another garden.
Nothing is harder than to remove a plant that has seen fit to survive for so many years, unaided by anyone other than God.
Brought in machinery and cleared the area, we had to remove all of the clutter. Alot to be done and much to gain.
We had determined to plant new trees along with the old, hard cider seemed logical. We can use some for the typical uses and then we can also blend for a tasty old time drink.
Walking on this old land and working with it, rather than forcing it to a newer version has turned out to be the best course of action.
I have walked to the top of the property and looked out at the fabulous view...someone else may have decided that the house at the top would be more aesthetic...I think the old homesteaders knew what they were doing when they put this house right where it is.
We'll just walk to the top and rest for a spell, enjoying what we see.
