13 Oct Delicious
Today we went to a farm called Delicious Orchards and met with Jeff Schwarz who says his farm his an organic, biodynamic farm that is used by the community. They grow lots of fruit, varieties of apples, pears, peaches, apricots, plums and cherries. Jeff is a “doer” who says “yes” to most things and likes the depth and richness that results. One of the more powerful moments was when Jeff shared his biodynamic preparations and compost and his passion for taking care of the soil and the community. We picked apples and tomatoes and made sure to swing on the rope swings. We took apples home for crisp and tomatoes for canning.
