It seems like everybody has a blog today. You can find lots of people who are ready to share lots of opinions – and lots of people who just want to share.
When we told people we were leaving our “American Dream” lifestyle, and moving to an orchard, the verbalized response varied from “I think that is so cool!”, to “God Bless You!” The unverbalized responses were more interesting: “can you really make a living that way?”; “aren’t you too smart for that?”; or just “why would you want to do that?”
Why indeed? The answer to that is too long to put in a simple response, and too long to post in a single article. Most people today really don’t know much about where their food comes from. This blog will help describe our daily life: the challenges, the rewards, and an accurate description of life on our orchard.
