We're always excited this time of year to participate in the Antelope Valley Fair. We're very proud to have won ribbons every year we've participated, since 2003. Our big winners this year: nectarines & Asian pears.
Dogs pick their own fruit!
Our dogs Sky King the golden retriever & Chocolate the labrador retriever go out into the orchard every morning just after breakfast to pick their dessert. They repeat this several times a day. What do they like? Just like people, they want the ripest, tastiest fruit. They will go from tree to tree, sniffing around until they find fruit to their liking. Grab it & pull. My husband Jack saw Sky King bypass the low level fruit & jump at the tree to pick own just a little higher. He got it on first leap too.
