Cold Spring Orchard

What's New

Soil Testing
We are currently taking soil samples of various blocks around the orchard so we can send them off to the UMASS Soils Lab to be analyzed. This will allow us to apply the appropriate amounts and kinds of fertilizer, helping us to comply with the new Mass Department of Agricultural Resources guidelines
Spring Has Sprung
We have been busy at the orchard preparing for the fast-approaching growing season. We have been getting tractors and equipment ready, switching out snow plows for field plows, collecting soil samples to be analyzed by The UMASS Soils Lab and installing and fixing trellis systems. Some extremely cold temperatures in January and February are most likely going to have a big impact on our crop. This early on it is hard to know just how much of our fruit crop will be effected. We will continue to monitor the flower buds and keep you updated.
