You may have noticed some recent changes in the landscape at the Faulkner Homestead. IWF friends and neighbors, high school students, and even passersby have helped clear brush and overcrowded trees from the hillside west of the house.
This area is where the Faulkner family had a small apple orchard All the fruit trees are gone, but we hope to reinstate the apple-growing tradition on the old Faulkner farm. An added bonus should be a clearer view of the house from Main Street!
Our heartfelt thanks to all who helped out!
