A tour of Michael Phillips orchard through the seasons. Every farm and homestead can enjoy the timeless pleasure of an organic fruit orchard. Yet this can also be challenging, because few people today have the depth of knowledge and experience needed to produce healthy trees and nutritious, great-tasting fruit without the use of harmful and expensive chemicals. The answer is to create a more holistic orchard: one that emphasizes biological health and diversity from the microscopic fungi in the soil to the beneficial insects, companion plants, and the birds and wildlife that together form a complete and living orchard ecosystem. In other words, an orchard that works with nature rather than fighting against it. Michael Phillips is a pioneering author and orchardist whose books include The Holistic Orchard and The Apple Grower. In this video, he leads viewers through a year in his own orchard, demonstrating basic horticultural skills like grafting and pruning, but also revealing groundbreaking and field-tested strategies for growing apples and other tree fruits not just organically, but holistically.
