About This Blog

My name is Eliza Greenman and I’m an orchardist, fruit explorer, public speaker, farmer activist, and sometimes consultant. I’ve been obsessed with learning about growing fruit trees since 2007. After learning the management practices that go into producing flawless fruit, I’ve started to question the ethics currently involved in producing the status quo. This blog presents my thoughts, ideas, observations, failures, successes, excitement, provocations and mischief involved in tree and orchard care. If you enjoy it, think about donating (no pressure). Donations help me to keep this up and bring it to a broader audience.Donate Button

  1. Hi Eliza

    I discovered your blog through a link in the Regrarian group on facebook. I think your work is just amazing!!! You are such an inspiration!

    I haven’t taken the time to read much yet, but from what I have read of it, I just love it! In your articles your tone is so humble, non judgemental, full of empathy and understanding… yet full of passion and scientific research basis as well. What mostly strikes me is your dedication to applying reg ag methods to broad acre farming, because as you rightly say, the issues are totally different from a home scale point of view. For me that have been in the permaculture family for 5 years now, I still see that most permaculturists do not grasp that at all. And that is precisely what I would like to work on, learn, practice and teach about as well!

    Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring stories, I will definitely continue following them! 🙂

  2. Hi Eliza!

    We bought a 115 year old farm last year that has 11 apple trees on it. So far this year, we’ve picked 150lbs of apples. I was just about to compost 120lbs of these apples when I found your site. We ate not treating our apples (or any other foods) with anything and we’re just cutting our losses. After reading your posts, I’m planning on eating these apples now, but I’m still nervous. Do you have a way to upload some pictures of common things we’re seeing that you can help us decide what to eat and what to compost?
