It's March! That means that warmer weather is on the way.
Winter in the orchard is the time to take a deep breath, go on long-anticipated vacations, catch up on sleep and enjoy the snow. It's also the time for vehicle maintenance, ordering trees, prepping fields, clearing branches and apples from the grass, and attending meetings with other growers. Of course, these jobs are made all the more fun with the help of Jack! He's almost one and he has been a great help digging holes, chasing deer and always being at Marshall's side. Well, except for when he is running laps around the orchard.
Once April gets here we'll be busy pruning, planting and getting the market ready for the 2017 season. Watch for lots of news then!
