Ted Richarson hosted a tour at his Bella Ridge Farm, a small, 2 acre, CCOF certified farm outside of Occidental.
We toured his over 300 fruit trees including apples, pears (European and Asian varieties), peaches, pluots, plums and more. The tour showcased a low-chill growing area and associated challenges, pests and diseases, and pollinators. Tomato, eggplant and pepper plant varieties for sale, and two apple trees were raffled off for free.
Thanks Ted for opening your farm and expertise to the group.
