Once upon a time, there was an amazing delicious Apple Farm located in the heart of Apple Valley . Envision this farm as a place where soil, plants, animals and people can live together and thrive with a common goal.
Apple Valleys 1700 trees range in age from young whips to 90 year old heirloom specimens. The orchard is truly a treasure in an area that is quickly losing its diversity. Morning fog and hot afternoons produce tender skinned and intensely perfumed fruit on a completely certified organic sustainable farm land which has been members of CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) for many years but found itself veering off towards an even deeper commitment. The idea of looking at the farm as a complete organism central to the practice of Biodynamics®, which the owners began practicing in earnest several years ago. The first step was to seek Stellar Certification and then to continue towards Demeter Certification.
Apple Acres Farm has been in the Johnson family since 1949. Leighton (aka Pappy) Johnson bought the farm and started raising apples and chickens. The apples survived, chickens didn't. 30 years later, Pappy was ready to retire so he put the farm up for sale. Son Bill couldn't bear to see it sold so quit his job and moved his family back to the farm in 1979 where he continued (and still does) the apple farming tradition. He replanted many of the old orchards, built a beautiful gift store, acquired a commercial cider press and slowly built the business up.
