History: George Hubbard planted these trees in the early 1960s. He was a retired person who supported himself and his wife with the fruit of the trees and the produce that grew under them. George Hubbard passed away unexpectedly and George and Rose Uitrich bought and took over care of the orchard. Eventually George V. reduced its size by about half. Six of the trees that remain are in poor condition. I bought the place in 2007 and know little about the apples. George V. told me that they had never been sprayed with a pesticide. He said the orchard contained Macs, Canadian Macs, Transparent, Early Junes, and Red Delicious.
