  A Day at Chaffin Family Orchard
Olive Orchard

Visited down at Chaffin Family Orchard and got quite the tour of their unique operation. The diversity and integration of this orchard is inspiring. I got some great shots of fruit and fur, it was certainly worth the drive.


Goats help prune the suckers from the olive trees.

Chickens work too by eating pest insects from the soil, fertilizing and doing a light tillage.

Pomegranates have to be some of the most beautiful fruit.
