This week we’re finishing up pruning, uncovering strawberries and planting new trees. Growing season is on its way!
This winter we continued restoration work on the barn.
Our barn is one of our most beloved structures on the farm. We started our business with the apple storage and sorting in the basement and the small sales room on the main level. We used that space for over ten years before moving to the Appleshed. We all have great fondness for our barn.
We are more than excited to let you know that we will be bringing the barn back to you the public for the fall of 2021. We began the extensive work to restore structural integrity to it in the past and this year we’ve turn our work to preparing to the inside! This involves installing new footings, beans and substructure in the basement; new flooring in the lower haymow and creating access for all by building ramps and decking. We’ve planned this work carefully to incorporate all the safety features needed while preserving the integrity of the barn.
As our plans for this space progress, we will keep you posted.
