Visit to the Old Goat Farm

Sept 13 meeting at Old Goat Farm

Sept 13 meeting at Old Goat Farm

We started off the 2012-2013 year with a trip to the Old Goat Farm. The day was wonderful — in the 70s — and one of the owners, Gary Waller gave a talk on designing with recycled elements in the yard under the apple trees. Since the last year’s windstorm, they created a spectacular “artful” compost fence. It’s 12 feet tall, three feet deep and 60 feet long. I don’t think I’ll be looking at windfall the same again.

We got a private tour of the grounds and a chance to make some purchases at their nursery. We also left each with a sample issue of Pacific Horticulture. Who could ask for more?
