Scott Farm’s Springtime Renaissance: Above the Orchard, Beauty in Full Bloom
Beauty in Full Bloom: Above the Apple Orchard, Scott Farm, Vermont
It’s apple blossom season at Scott Farm in Dummerston, Vermont, and the orchard is in full, fragrant glory. HavingÂ posted many articles here on The Gardener’s Eden about theÂ Scott FarmÂ orchardÂ —both during the springtime bloom and again during the autumn apple harvest— I decided to do something a bit different this year. Change is in the air at Scott Farm, and inspired by the uplifting mood, I took to the sky for a fresh, symbolic perspective on this beautiful, Vermont treasure.
Row upon row of heirloom fruit trees —including apples, quince, peaches, plums and pears, as well as berries— Â fill the orchard at Scott Farm.Â
With Tristam Johnson now serving as interim executive director at Landmark Trust, the springtime excitement at Scott Farm has reached an all-time high. Kelly Carlin, office manager, has been updating Scott Farm’s website, and long-time orchard manager and heirloom fruit tree expert, Ezekiel Goodband has recently begun blogging; journaling about day-to-day orchard keeping, as well as posting updates on fruit tree sales, educational programs and community activities at the farm. There’s a springtime renaissance happening at Scott Farm, and the entire orchard is buzzing with the lively energy of a newly invigorated hive. Be sure to visit the Scott Farm website throughout the growing season for information about the availability of ecologically grown orchard fruit and berries, as well as seasonal events and educational opportunities at Scott Farm.
A heart-felt thank you goes out to Landmark Trust’s new, Executive Director, Tristam Johnson, Scott Farm’s Office Manager, Kelly Carlin and Scott Farm Orchard Manager, Ezekiel Goodband for extending a warm welcome on my visits, both aerial and terrestrial. Wishing everyone at Scott Farm a bright and happy new growing season!
