Our Indiegogo campaign to harvest the trees of this orchard raised nearly $20,000! With that we were able to harvest half the orchard, roughly 200 trees! Thank you to everyone who supported the campaign through your purchases, and your love. The amount of supportive mail and stories of how this place touched peoples lives over the generations made it an incredibly rewarding project to work on.
With the money raised we were able to purchase a Logosol M8 mill, and an additional chainsaw! It was really a joy to mill with the M8 mill compared to the alaskan mill.
Many thanks to Kevin Chaves and Jack Alexander for their work on our amazing campaign video. Thanks to Tanya Neumeyer for her work to host our open house Thanks to Lost Girl, and Lukas Voz for playing at our fundraiser party Thanks also to the Ferri and the Potovszky family, especially Nick Ferri, and Nick Potovsky for all of their help and good humour. Special thanks to the craftsmen who joined us: Brian Volz, Andreas Merker, Scott Barber, Stephen Henderson, Joshua Brasse, Karen King, and Joerg Wittenbrinck. You made it all possible by going above and beyond with your beautiful work.
We recently had a picnic catered on some of the apple wood products we made to celebrate the completion of our project. Check out the photos below
