A quick visit to the Fall Harvest Orchard near Delano, MN to visit some new kids on the block.
Addendum 8/31/2014 —
I just got a call concerning the owner of the Fall Harvest Orchard “Farmer Curt”. Curt Peterson passed away this morning as a result of complications from a fall that occurred earlier on the farm this spring.
Farmer Curt was dedicated to his farm and loved being able to share it with the area. He was happiest driving his tractor with a load of school children through the orchards and surrounding fields. Coincidentally an announcement was made earlier this spring that this was to be the last year for the Orchard, The property was slated to be sold at this year’s end.
In the end, he was able to take part in the preparation for the final season– getting his cows, sheep, goats, pigs, peacocks, pheasants and chickens of every sort ready for their last show for the children of the area.
Rest in Peace Farmer Curt – I and my family are richer for knowing you.
