It's Springtime at Spring Vale Farm! After a long cold winter, the first blossoms have appeared on our apple trees! A promise of a great apple harvest this season.
What's happening in the orchard at this time of year? Environmentally friendly coddling-moth control measures! Each tree trunk is wrapped in cotton calico to stop the grubs from climbing up to the apples. With over 1000 trunks to wrap, there's plenty to do!
