I pass this field daily on my way to Good Fruit Grower’s offices in Yakima, Washington.
Our magazine reports on the latest research on best practices for irrigation, trellis systems, the merits of a new varieties and much more.
To see all these elements come together in the construction of a new orchard is inspiring. Weeks ago, this plot of land was just bumpy dirt. Then came earth movers, followed by crews who installed irrigation pipes and the trellis network and young fruit trees.
Today, I stopped and examined the handiwork. It was pretty impressive, especially flowers on the new trees.
