Farm Star Living

July has arrived, and that means McIntosh, Gala and Ginger Gold apples galore –among many others! Some of our favorite apples come from Fowler Farms, a family-owned farm just south of Lake Ontario in New York. Having been in the business for six generations, Fowler Farms has truly perfected the art of cultivating apples, and currently, they grow over 23 varieties!

Farming is a way of life, and unpredictable and ever-changing weather can cause chaos for those who live that life. Heavy winds and rain, months-long droughts, extreme temperatures – all of these can ruin or delay growing seasons and cause a lot of extra expenses.
