Early spring at Erickson Orchards in Bayfield means digging in the dirt and getting ready for the busy season. I do their photography and help with some of their social media, and today I started my seasonal monthly visits to document the farm. Not only do I love this family and their business, but the fact they are dog fans adds to the fun. Zeke likes to patrol the grounds looking for anything that might be an intruder ;).
There are so many new things being planted. They’ve been planting like crazy – including new bartlett pear trees, some peach trees, and new strawberry patches. Fred is hoping to have 4000 trees on site in the next two years. I’ll have more up about that on their website in the next few weeks.
The other fun part about this was that I have been trying for years to get a portrait of Jimmy Erickson (Fred’s dad) and his best friend Mac. I have no idea why it never happened – but I was finally able to get a few shots this afternoon. I am so, so happy I could document these two together. They really make me smile.
Definitely come out and visit the orchard starting Memorial Day weekend – Muriel’s donuts are incredible!
