As a farmer who has worked every day for years on the farm, it makes me smile to read this phrase. If you want to, however, you can feel like a proper farmer. Want to know how? Adopt one of the apples at my farm hotel and, in autumn, you can come to harvest the apples. Does that appeal to you?
I look after the apples all year round, tending to the trees and the land. Come autumn, I harvest the fruits of my labours. Over the years, a lot of people have said to me that they would like to experience being a proper farmer and harvest their apples directly from the tree, like I do.
This is why my colleagues and I have devised a way to make this happen. Do you want to get involved with Adopt an Apple Tree, an opportunity for a farm holiday in the Val di Non at one of the participating farms, like mine. You can choose your apple tree when it blossoms in the spring, give it a name and then come back in autumn to harvest the apples from YOUR tree. Isn’t that amazing?
I will be expecting you!
