Our orchards are situated on a south facing slope, although from the air it looks quite flat.


This is a buckrake that we use to push up the pruning each winter prior to burning them. A new buckrake has small round tines that end up digging into the ground and bending. We made this one from Fork Truck tines bought at a farm sale. We have not  bent one yet!!!.
