Growing up my sister and I loved to play in the orchard. There was an old pig pen which we played in when we were little. Then when we got ‘big’ and had a motor bike to drive around we did laps of the orchard and the highlight was the hog wollow which made a great jump.
My Mum mentioned she recalls Old Mike (the dog) having guarding the orchard to stop people from stealing all the ripe apples. Some of the types of trees my Mum recalls are Baldwin, Russet, Spye, Snow and Pumpkin Sweet.
