A Spring Orchard Tour
Today is the start of something different. We’re going to start posting YouTube videos as a way to provide more regular updates on our various farm related activities. Subscribe and enjoy!
In this video, I give a tour of the silvopasture and show off how the trees survived through the winter. For those of you who are new to the blog, we started a 6 1/2 acre integrated orchard and silvopasture in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Staged as integrated rows along more than a mile of swales and berms, our orchard includes chestnuts, hazelnuts, mulberry, elderberry, apple and black locust. While it is going to take years to develop, we are really excited about our future food forest. This was a huge effort last year.
