Too bad; beautiful spread. I had 10ac of mixed orchards, and pulled it all after 10yrs, rather than having to deal with disease, insects, chemicals, labor and gov’t a-holes. Put it back into productive, money-making crops, with the rest of the 200ac.
When you say “govt a-holes” what exactly did the govt do? Just for growing fruit trees on your own property? What the heck? Can’t we do that anymore? Or was it over the pesticides you wanted to use or what? This is mind boggling. I helped some friends slaughter and process some chickens last weekend. I bet the govt could fine/prosecute us for that. Gees.
