Buffalo Ridge Orchard

Growing Quality Local Produce Responsibly

October Sunset

This last Friday the sunset at the farm was breathtaking.  Normally the calm that is brought by the sunset is followed by a flurry of activity on the farm.  Whether it is racing to spray the orchard while the winds have subsided or rolling the row cover over our fall lettuces.  The open horizon on the farm is interrupted by old farm buildings and volunteer trees and brush along the edge of the garden.  This winter we will work to remove the old livestock buildings and modify some of the units for equipment and bulk material storage.  We will also continue to clear out the volunteer trees along the south side of the garden so that we can replace them with the pear orchard.  However this Friday the sunset made it easy to forget about the future horizon and just appreciate the calm that the red and orange sky brings to the farm.

About buffaloridgeorchard

Buffalo Ridge Orchard grows vegetables, apples, and pears for local coops and farmer's markets. We have over 25 different types of new and classic apple varieties. In 2011 we installed our first moveable hoop house which allows us to grow greens and root vegetables in the winter and get an early start on tomatoes and extend the season for other vegetable crops.
