Whitman Brook: Orchard Growing Apple Trees Rooted In The PastSep 16, 2021 02:57PM ● By By Cassie Horner
“The orchard and adjacent field were a mess,” Terry says. “It was starting to revert to forest. It had been planted before Calvin Coolidge was in the White House. In 1995, if you were standing at one tree, you couldn’t see the next one. We spent five years restoring the orchard. Everybody thought I had lost my mind but I knew what I could make it look like. I kept every tree that was alive that could be nursed back to health. Now I move through the orchard and see the same trees in every season. Everything is so magical.”To continue reading this story please see page 32 in the Woodstock Magazine Fall 2021 digital edition.
