Unfortunately, the orchard and grounds has been badly neglected by previous owners who had no interest in benefiting from the beautiful plants and orchard that had been established about 100 years ago. I, however, took one look at the grounds and saw the potential that lay just below the surface with a little work to restore it. The first year at the orchard has been spent just trying to reclaim the trees and plants that are overrun by weeds and neglect. It has been an often overwhelming job. As one of my neighbors put it, “It is easier to maintain a property than try to reclaim it.” This is true, however, it’s also been a little fun and exiting learning how to do it and seeing the enormous progress just a little bit of effort can accomplish.
