dorothy's apple orchard

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

For many years this apple orchard was owned and operated by Dorothy Milnamow and her husband. We would visit each fall, picking apples and enjoying the wonderful apple cider doughnuts fried daily in the kitchen. We'd pay for the apples and pick up a big jug of my husbands favorite - unfiltered apple cider. Dorothy's husband died a few years ago, and she sold the orchard to a young family who is carrying on her tradition.

Thank you for this. I am Dorothy's oldest son. This picture has been clipped to Mom's refrigerator for a few years now. It was getting faded and I thought that it needed a redo. I am so glad that I found it, and really like your Blog. Some 9 years later, I have not been back to the farm, it's just to hard. That corner in the picture at one time held a Catholic Church, the cemetary is across the road. I would love to get a water color of this pic. And oh yeah, more than likely I pressed your cider. Thank you, Tom
