Pruning

John, Casey, and Jason have started the laborious task of pruning the orchard.

The weather was extremely pleasant for day 1. It will take this powerhouse crew about 8-10 weeks to hand prune all 1,700 of our apple and pear trees. Each variety has its own growing characteristics, which means each one has to have specific care.

If you are interested in pruning techniques for your own backyard orchard, we will be offering a free pruning workshop later in the month. Stay tuned to this page and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates.
